Keane starts as Ireland plays Sweden to a scoreless draw

By Adam Serrano

LA Galaxy captain Robbie Keane enjoyed another strong performance for Ireland as the Irish earned a scoreless draw against Sweden in their World Cup Qualifier match in Stockholm on Friday. 

Keane was one of Ireland's most active players on the night, but was unable to find the back of the net before giving way for Wes Hoolahan in the 77th minute of play. 

With the result, Ireland remain in third place in Group C with seven points just one point behind Sweden for second place. Keane and the Irish return to action on Tuesday against fourth-place Austria in Dublin.
