LA Galaxy release Keane for Wembley date

Proving that 24 hours is a long time in football, the Football Association of Ireland this evening announced that Robbie Keane has had further discussions with his club regarding the international matches in May and June which fall outside the FIFA international window.

Following those additional discussions, Robbie and LA Galaxy have now agreed that he can be released for the friendly fixtures against England in Wembley and Georgia in Dublin.

Speaking today, Ireland Captain Keane said:

"I would like to thank LA Galaxy for reconsidering their decision after further conversations between us which really means a lot to me. We have reached an agreement that will enable me to make it to the games and I look forward to playing my part".
