Poll: Who do you think should win the FAI International Goal of the Year?
Seamus Coleman, David Forde and Robbie Keane are all up for the top prize.

FORGET THE OSCARS, the most important prize-giving ceremony taking place this evening is the ‘Three’ FAI International Football Awards.

Okay, maybe not but it’s still an important night for the likes of Robbie Keane, David Forde and Seamus Coleman who are all up for the top prize, the FAI Senior International of the Year.

Last month we asked who you thought should pick up the gong and Forde was the overwhelming favourite with 80% of vote followed by Coleman on 12% and Keane on 8%.

Ciaran Clark, James McCarthy and James McClean will also battle it out for the Young International Player of the Year gong while Saint Patrick’s Athletic duo Killian Brennan and Ger O’Brien are up against Dundalk’s Richie Towell for the SSE Airtricity League Player of the Year.

Louise Quinn, Shannon Smyth, Julie-Ann Russell will contest the Women’s Senior International Player of the year category while these three efforts are up for International Goal of the Year:

Wes Hoolahan v Poland


Shane Long v England


and Robbie Keane’s first goal v The Faroes

Peter O'Doherty

So, what we really want to know today is, who do you think should win the Senior International Goal of the Year?

Poll Results:

Robbie Keane (431)
Shane Long (216)
Wes Hoolahan (33)
