ROBBIE Keane struck a debut goal for West Ham to ensure fellow Irishman Andy Reid endured a losing start with Blackpool.

Reid had made a deadline day move from Sunderland on Monday just hours before Keane swapped Spurs from the Hammers.

And it was Keane’s Irish eyes that were smiling as he struck West Ham’s second of the night, with Victor Obinna scoring the other two.

West Ham held off Blackpool’s spirited efforts at a comeback, Charlie Adam getting their goal.
