Ireland-Germany video preview: I think Robbie Keane was annoyed with Roy's breast-feeding joke Newsdesk Newsdesk

Football writers Dion Fanning and Daniel McDonnell have been giving their opinion on the eve of Ireland's crucial Group D clash with Germany at the Aviva Stadium.

Neither feel that there is a great expectation surrounding a clash with the World Champions in our own backyard.

"I thought there was a little bit of annoyance in Robbie's answer," Dion said.

"It's great that Robbie is here, you would expect him to be here. He's had two hours with his wife and new baby. It's something to be commended.

"Roy's stuff yesterday was funny, in a typically Roy way."

Martin O'Neill praised Robbie for his commitment to the cause and Fanning thought that was the answer Roy Keane should have given, rather than the one-lliner.

Both would be surprised to see the Irish captain starting against the Germans tomorrow night.
