    Robbie has way more confidence than ability but it the combination of confidence/ability have made him one of the great strikers of his era. I guess the overlooked part of that goal is that it came against one of the leagues top goalkeepers.

      If your confidence exceeds your ability- more often than not, you fail at what you attempt and sit on the bench. Not the case at all with Keane. He’s been a pretty consistent producer both scoring and providing service. He is not at all endowed with ability in the glamorous form of blazing speed, or a hulking frame, but he obviously has all kinds of ability of the kind that seems to be undersold/ignored in youth programs in the US… dexterity, deft touch and calm, control in tight spaces, a very good accurate shot and excellent vision.
