Along with the rest of his LA Galaxy brethren, Robbie Keane had a pretty flawless Sunday afternoon – scoring the winning goal in extra-time against New England Revolution to clinch a record-breaking MLS Cup championship title for his team.

Sadly, there was a minor fly in the ointment for Keane, as several eagle-eyed fans duly pointed out.

Before the game, Keane stuck a photo of his customised boots up on Facebook, alongside a pair he’d had specially made for his young son Robert – who led the Galaxy team out before kick-off…

Can you spot the small but ever-so-crucial error in Robbie’s personalised stitching work?


Here’s a clue…


Yep. Proud Tallaght man Keane scored the winning goal in the MLS Cup with the Ivory Coast flag stitched into his boots.

Either it was a tremendous display of international kinship or someone in Nike’s customisation department did a bit of a rubbishness.
