Five more years for me: Rob

RECORD-BREAKER Robbie Keane has dismissed any talk of retiring from international football, saying he plans to carry on scoring goals for Ireland for another five years.

Keane will set a new caps record for Ireland when he plays for the 126th time in tonight's World Cup qualifier at home to the Faroe Islands. And he says he still has the ambition to lead the line for Ireland beyond the 2014 World Cup.

"When you get older your desire and hunger is even more so, even though I don't feel like I am coming to an end – I feel I have another five or six years left," he said.

"I have no intention of leaving as long as I have that hunger and desire. I will retire when I stop scoring goals. I will keep going as long as I can."
