Defeat for Irish pair

Posted on 30 May 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Robbie Keane and Gary Doherty both played as Republic of Ireland were beaten by Nigeria in the Unity Cup at Charlton on Saturday.

Big Doc came back into defence after sitting out Thursday's 0-0 draw against Romania and could do little as Nigeria ran out 3-0 winners at The Valley. Chances were few and far between for Robbie at the other end.

The pair have a couple of days to recover before Ireland's second and final Unity Cup game against Jamaica at The Valley onWednesday.

Meanwhile, Fredi Kanoute's Mali drew 0-0 against Morocco in a friendly on Friday.
