    Kevin Sheedy

    Irish Career Kevin Sheedy scored 9 goals in 49 appearances. Damien Duff, another left winger has 8 goals in 100 appearances. Kevin Kilbane, you guessed it a left footer has 8 in 110 appearances. Ireland doesn’t produce players that score many goals (Robbie Keane is the exception) so Sheets record is really impressive, and he had […] More
