Keane targets Sweden game


Robbie Keane will 'definitely' be ready for the Republic of Ireland's Euro 2016 game against Belgium but is hopeful of featuring in the opener against Sweden.

Keane sat out Friday's 1-1 draw against the Netherlands and subsequently emerged as a major doubt for the championships when he sustained a calf injury in training on Saturday morning.

Despite the injury he was named in the 23-man squad for the tournament and the Ireland skipper is unlikely to return to training until next week at the earliest.

Ireland open their Group E campaign against Sweden on June 13 and Keane is hopeful he will be fit for the game in Paris.

"Listen, it's never nice when you get injured, but certainly at this stage because of the European Championships. But luckily for me, it's not as bad as I first thought," he told FAI TV.

"I thought it was going to be a lot longer. They are saying a couple of weeks, which would obviously get me fit for the Sweden game, or maybe if I miss that one, I'll definitely be ready for the second game, it's bad news, but it could have been a lot worse."
