Robbie Keane scores his 62nd international goal as Ireland defeat Latvia

By Adam Serrano

Robbie Keane got back to his goal scoring ways on Friday with the game-winning strike in Ireland's 3-0 victory over Latvia in Dublin, which was the first victory for new manager Martin O'Neill. 

Keane's 62nd international goal came in the 21st minute of play when he tucked an Aiden McGeady corner into the back of the Latvian net. The LA Galaxy captain exited in the 73rd minute, but Ireland added two more goals in the second half after tallies by McGeady and Shane Long. 

Ireland return to action on Tuesday against Poland in Pozan.
