Robbie Keane felt Ireland deserved to get a win out of the 1-1 draw with Sweden at Euro 2016.

The striker came on in the final minutes after the Swedish equaliser, although a winner was not forthcoming.

Speaking after the game, he took the result in his stride even though he felt more was deserved.

"It is what it is. We certainly deserved to win the game and the three points. There's no question about it but it happens in football. It's a cruel game sometimes but one thing we can't do is get our heads down and be moping around because we put in a hell of a performance. All we have to do now is take a lot of positives from this game and move on to Belgium," he said.
