Robbie Keane and his Ireland team-mates made talkingbaws.com yesterday after treating some fans to a singalong in a Dublin bar after they qualified for Euro 2016 earlier this week.
The legendary Irish striker showed off his vocal range as he joined Shane Long, Robbie Brady, Wes Hoolahan and a delighted crowd of supporters for a chant or two.
Luckily, a fan was on hand to record it all – and captured Long tearing apart the guitar and Keane’s voice of an angel.

The St Mirren striker wrote and sang this song while a member of the Cardiff City team which went all the way to the FA Cup final in 2008. The Bluebirds failed to beat Portsmouth to lift the Cup, but Thompson’s musical debut was a big hit with fans.

If you’re a youngster forced to sing in front of your new team-mates as part of your first team graduation then you may as well smash it out of the park. That’s what happened when young Hull goalie Rory Watson got up on a chair in front of Steve Bruce’s first team squad last year. Jason Mraz couldn’t sing it so well!

Nobody had a clue Adam Matthews was such a good singer when he stepped up to the mic during Celtic’s Player of the Year awards ceremony in 2013. Tom Jones eat your heart out.
