Keane to bag a brace or more 7/2

It’s time for the first international break of the new season, and it’s set to be an emotional one for the Republic of Ireland’s all-time record goalscorer Robbie Keane, as he gets ready for his final international outing against Oman.

The LA Galaxy frontman announced that he will be retiring from the international scene after this latest appearance, and on what will the final time for Irish fans to see Keane donning the green jersey, he can be backed at 7/2 to dispatch a double or more as Coral’s bet of the day (£20 max stake).

Farewell outing for Keane

Ireland skipper Keane has featured for his country 145 times, scoring a record 67 goals over an incredible international career spanning 18 years, and his absence from the set-up will be a big blow for Martin O’Neill.

The Boys in Green enjoyed an impressive Euro 2016 campaign when reaching the last 16, but Keane played a small role in proceedings after becoming a bit-part player in the latter stages of his career, forcing him to call time on his career with his nation.

Minnows Oman have lost on both occasions that they have collided with Ireland and that looks set to continue this midweek, with Keane hoping to sign off his impressive international career with more goals.

The 36-year-old Dubliner, who has featured for the likes of Tottenham, Liverpool, Leeds United and West Ham United in England, has netted five goals so far this term in the MLS, including an opening double.

So make sure to back Keane to bag a brace or more at a superb matchday special of 7/2 (£20 max stake), in his last ever outing for the Republic of Ireland against Oman as Coral’s latest bet of the day!
