Robbie Keane breaks international scoring record

6th June 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

After scoring twice in the Republic of Ireland's 2-0 win over Macedonia, Robbie Keane is now his country's all-time leading scorer.

The brace means he has now hit the net 51 times during football games for his national side. As well as this, he is the first British or Irish player to record 50 international goals.

His two strikes could prove to be crucial in the Republic of Ireland's quest to qualify for Euro 2012.

Commenting after the game, Keane said: "Three points are more important than Robbie Keane scoring. We were the better team. They had possession, but did not create much."

Keane added that it was great to set a new scoring record for his country.

The Republic of Ireland are now sat at the top of Group B with 13 points from their six games.

However, both Russia and Slovakia have reached the same points total.
