Player Review

86 - Hero
5.0
Best striker I've used in years
By YNWAkraut, 16-12-2021

I've been playing FUT since it first became part of FIFA many years ago and in all those years I probably haven't had a better striker than Keane.

In most games he feels like a cheat code to me because he is so agile, so quick and hits the back of the net from all angles with both feet.


His positioning is something I haven't seen in any other player and if you only play him up front in the central role, he scores his goals in every game - you know how it is, sometimes you get really destroyed in FUT Champs - even in those cases Keane still scores his 2-3 goals. 


I've been playing the Weekend League / FUT Champs regularly for the last few years but in FUT22 I had trouble qualifying for a long time. Since I've had Keane as my striker I've qualified regularly and played tournaments with 47 points, which is absolutely crazy for me.

I've tried much more expensive icons who had much better stats and I've always gone back to Keane. He definitely plays like an icon and absolutely has that 'meta feeling'. Don't let the 86 fool you, he is one of the best strikers in the game.



  • Shooting equally perfect with both feet
  • Pace
  • Agility
  • Positioning
  • Body type
  • 'Ball glued to the foot' - feeling
  • Feels like a prime Icon
  • Even feels so much better than the stats on his card in every aspect


  • short passing is okay but make sure he's always in the box

Other Robbie Keane Reviews

A must have for any BPL team!

Having stuck with a BPL team this year, I've found a few issues finding a higher class striker that goes above and beyond.However, this card sorted that issue out. With insane agility, pace and shooting, I find myself walking away from games thinking 'did he really just do that?'.Although not an end game card, this card will happily see you through beginning - mid stages of the game cycle.Als...

Absolute BPL God

I played Keane for over 70 games now and I must say he really is excellent. I also played him in Fut Champions as well as Division 1 and he is an absolute beast. I personally play him in a 4222 with Werner, just because this is by far my most favorite formation. However, he will also do very well in a single striker formation, as this card just breaks any rules. Keane feels really agile and easy to control...

Nearly the perfect striker

Robbie Keane is a 9.5/10 striker. Does everything very well and the only bad things about him are just fifa being fifa. Pace is very good he is very quick but I think his dribbling makes him feel a bit slower compared to my other striker IF Jesus which they basically have the same pace. Shooting is so good as well, scores most of his chances and can shoot first time shots very well. Keepe...
