Robbie Keane not joining Ireland for upcoming friendly against Serbia

By Adam Serrano

LA Galaxy captain Robbie Keane is on the mend and with the MLS regular season fast approaching, he will not be participating in Ireland’s upcoming match against Serbia.

The Ireland captain was left off the roster by head coach Martin O’Neill ahead of the March 5 match in Dublin against Serbia.

In their release, the Ireland Football Association states that O’Neill has spoken with Keane and omitted the striker so that he may focus on the Galaxy’s season opener against Real Salt Lake on March 8.
