Tottenham striker Robbie Keane says Ireland teammate and Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given is every bit as good as Chelsea's Petr Cech.

Keane said: "Cech is one of the best goalkeepers in the world but we are quite lucky in that we have the best in Shay Given.

"Cech is different class but Shay Given is for me one of the best goalkeepers I have ever seen."
