People are remembering where they were 16 years ago for Robbie Keane's famous goal

Ireland fans will remember the 2002 World Cup for two things.

One of them is the Saipan incident, the other is Robbie Keane's famous goal against the Germans.

It was 16 years ago today that Keane latched on to Niall Quinn's header and stuck it in the net past Oliver Kahn.

With the 2018 World Cup just over a week away - a tournament Ireland won't be participating in - people have been remembering where they were when Keane scored one of Ireland's most famous goals.

Seeing as we're feeling nostalgic, we might as well enjoy the other famous Ireland goal against Germany.

Step up, Shane Long.
