Robbie Keane remained on the bench for the whole duration of the two matches that Ireland played against Bosnia & Herzegovina and he was not given much of a playing time against Germany or Poland either.
He is in his mid thirties now and is by no means a guaranteed pick for Euro. But, he has been backed by his club teammate Steven Gerrard.
According to Gerrard, on the basis of the experience that he has got, the veteran striker should definitely be selected to represent the Green Army in France.
Gerrard was in conversation with the media in an event in Ireland the other day.
