Defender Michael Keane has a few career landmarks which are burned into the memory bank. Manchester United debut in 2011, first Premier League game in 2014, senior international debut and then that big move to Everton, both in 2017.

March 21 in 2010 has probably been removed from the honours list in his own mind but that was the day when Keane, then a very promising talent from the Manchester United academy, played international football for the first time.
