  1. 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 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.
