Robbie Keane was among the goals last night as the Galaxy defeated the New York Red Bulls 4-0 with his first a sensational individual goal.

The Ireland captain received the ball after a surging run upfield from Landon Donovan and he clipped the perfectly weighted lob beyond goalkeeper Luis Robles.

The former Tottenham and Liverpool striker marked the goal with his trademark cartwheel celebration and admitted post-match he practices the finish regularly in training.

“If you ask the players in training, I’m always doing it", he admitted. And it’s better when it comes off, obviously."

“Tonight it came off. A couple weeks ago against Chivas it came off.

Hopefully the form will be continued into Ireland's upcoming qualifiers.
