Keane on Steo

Posted on 30 April 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 has praised the recent impact made by defensive prospect Stephen Kelly and states that he is glad the young Irishman is one of ours.

The pacy 20-year-old has started the last two games in the absence of the suspended Stephen Carr and has given a good account of himself in testing circumstances.

The Republic of Ireland under-21 captain made his full debut in the final game of 2003 at home to Charlton and his progress has since been rewarded with a call-up to the Irish senior squad for the friendly against the Czech Republic.

"Steo is a great lad," commented Robbie. "The games that he has been involved in he has done a tremendous job and it hasn't looked like it is his first few games.

"He seems like he has been there a few years and has done a good job. He is a strong lad, has good pace and is good in the air.

"He is a great defender, hard to get past and is definitely one for the future.

"I'm just glad that he's ours."
