There was an Ireland game that I ended up watching back in the day pretty much by chance, this one against Holland I think, where Keane was just incredible, not just in the usual way he was, he did absolutely everything, his passing and drive was amazing.
Obviously at United he was part of an amazing midfield, without knowing the rest of the team Ireland had out that game, it probably wasn't quite Beckham, Scholes, Keane & Giggs, so he seemed to take on the responsibility himself.
