Shay Given on...

Robbie Keane's

Aston Villa future

"I don't know the ins and outs, but I think it's black and white that he goes back (to LA) this time and I don't know if anything will change in the summer. He's scored goals and been a big impact player for us, and a big influence on the changing room. He's only 31 so, as he says, watch this space, you don't know what might happen."

Richard Dunne's injury

Speaking to the doctor at the club, I think he'll be alright. He's had a pretty big operation on his shoulder and they've pinned it. It's more of a bone injury and the pins will be in position until it's healed together. We all know how strong Dunney is, so even if the bone doesn't heal properly, he'll still be playing. I don't think there's any fear of that."

Ireland's Euro


We'd love to win the competition, but realistically we're going out there with the belief we've got a good team and, if everyone stays fit, we can give every team a proper game. We've seen with Greece when they won the Euros that if momentum gets going and things happen and you get little bit of luck, anything can happen, and dreams do come true. We're not going out there to make up the numbers."
