No surprises here as L.A. Galaxy forward Robbie Keane has been named to Ireland’s roster for Euro 2012.

This year’s tournament, co-hosted by Poland and the Ukraine, begins June 8. (A fancy, interactive calendar from UEFA’s official site is here.)

Most teams will get into camp next week, so Keane figures to miss somewhere around five league matches for the Galaxy while doing his business for Giovanni Trapattoni’s squad.

Elsewhere provisional squads are being named, as with the Netherlands and Germany here.
