Keane thrilled by Dublin send-off

Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane says a feelgood factor is surrounding the squad ahead of Euro 2012.

"It has the given the country a great lift," said Keane.

The Irish skipper picked up a "bang on the ribs" in the first half of Saturday's 1-0 friendly win over Bosnia-Hercegovina but said that he will be "fine" for the European finals.

Keane added that Sunderland youngster James McClean has "settled very well into the squad".
