Robbie Keane wants to help Republic of Ireland beat Croatia
Tottenham legend Robbie Keane has revealed that he has been enjoying some banter with current Spurs star Luka Modric.
The pair will go head to head tomorrow as the Republic of Ireland take on Croatia in Group C at Euro 2012 and Keane wants to claim the bragging rights.
“I’ve been speaking to him over the last couple of days and having a bit of banter with him,” the LA Galaxy man said.
“I look forward to playing against him and hopefully after the game, shaking his hand with three points in the bag.
“We know they have grown as individual players and collectively as a team since [Slaven] Bilic took over as manager. They have become a stronger and even better team.”
