Video: Robbie Keane jr scores first 'international' goal as proud dad beams

Match: Ireland star Robbie Keane and son Robert junior
Match: Ireland star Robbie Keane and son Robert junior

Ireland's top goalscorer Robbie Keane has by any standard an incredible goal return for his country but could his son be the biggest threat to his record.

The LA Galaxy striker posted a video of four-year-old son Robert finding the net on his official facecbook page with the message: "Robert's first international goal - You only have 61 more to catch me son, haha!"

I don't see how this could be a recognised FIFA international but if Robbie says it's an international goal then who are we to argue.

The Keane family, who own a home in Claudine's native Malahide, have settled in LA, but mostly enjoy a quiet life away from the Hollywood party scene as Robbie concentrates on playing for LA Galaxy.
