Roy Keane Speaks About How Badly He Wants Scott Hogan To Play For Ireland

It's not a secret that Roy Keane has been to more Brentford games than we all would have expected in 2016. And there's one very good reason - Scott Hogan. The striker has been in blistering form since returning from injury, scoring seven goals in 11 Championship games this season.


It seemed as though Hogan was close to an Irish call-up, but the Salford-born striker has yet to commit to Ireland. Keane revealed at a press conference on Tuesday that O'Neill is scheduled to meet up with Hogan to gauge his interest in playing for Ireland in the future. Keane also appeared to be a huge fan of Hogan's and claimed that if he needs to, he'll speak to Hogan to try and get him on board:

The manager has touched base with him and is due to meet up with him in the next few weeks. We hope he’s keen to get on board.

He looks like a really good player, a proper goalscorer. I’ve seen him a few times. Hope to God he comes with us, he’ll be a good addition to the squad.

Hogan's form has attracted the attentions of Leicester and Swansea in recent months, and it sounds like Keane was one of the first to express an interest.
