Keane undergoes knee surgery

Striker expected to be out for six weeks

Robbie Keane will miss up to six weeks as he recovers from surgery on the knee injury that prevented him featuring in either of the Republic of Ireland friendlies against Switzerland and Slovakia.

Keane joined up with the rest of the Ireland squad for the resent friendlies but he was unable to play in either game due to a knee problem.

On his return to Los Angeles, the Republic of Ireland captain underwent surgery at the Santa Monica Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Group and Kerlan-Jobe Institute at Cedars-Sinai.

Alongside a photo of his right leg in bandages, Keane wrote on Instagram: "Operation done, speedy recovery, hopefully back stronger."

A statement from his club LA Galaxy read: "LA Galaxy forward Robbie Keane underwent successful surgery on his right knee Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles.

"The surgery was performed by Dr. Bert R. Mandelbaum at the Santa Monica Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Group and Kerlan-Jobe Institute at Cedars-Sinai.

"The Galaxy captain is expected to miss 4-6 weeks."

Ireland manager Martin O'Neill will be hoping Keane makes a speedy recovery from the surgery as he prepares to finalise his squad for Euro 2016, with the Boys in Green set to face the Netherlands on May 27.
