Robinho scores a goal-and-a-bit vs Ireland

Ex-City player (only at home though) Robinho only occasionally showed why we spunked £32 million for him during his time at City — yet he always seems to deliver the goods for the Brazil national team.

Robi scored one, was off-side for one, and delivered the cross that led to own goal in the recent 2-0 friendly win over a Republic of Ireland side featuring Shay Given, with reserve player Greg Cunningham on the Irish bench.

Stephen Ireland did not feature for some reason... of course we've always wondered "woy doesn't Stevie Oireland play fer Oireland?"

But whether Robinho comes back to City as a new player (or if indeed, he comes back at all) after his loan spell remains to be seen. But it's in our best interests for him to do well — even if the only reason is we can sell him in the off-season without making too much of a loss.

You can watch the highlights below.


  1. Stephen Ireland has retired from international football.

  2. Sorry John, a bit of a Cheers Bar in-joke there...
