An ankle injury meant he had to wait more than four months to make his Indian Super League debut, but Robbie Keane has wasted little time in getting off the mark for ATK.


After making his debut as a substitute two weeks ago, Ireland's record goalscorer scored the only goal of the game as the Kolkata-based side beat Delhi Dynamos.


Following some questionable finishing from Teddy Sheringham's side before the break, Keane displayed customary composure to show them how it's done.


The Tallaght man showed smart control and agility to shake off the attention of the Dynamos defender but drilling a low shot into the corner from inside the box.


It was ATK's first home win of the season – and only their second in total – and the result sees them move five points clear of rock-bottom Dynamos.
