Video: Robbie Keane was in top, top form last night
With Shane Long finding his form ahead of Friday's clash with Scotland with a brace for Southampton on Saturday, the pressure was on Robbie Keane to perform and he did in style last night.
The Ireland captain set up three goals, one a sublime flick over the defence for Landon Donovan to complete a hat-trick, and he also scored one himself in LA Galaxy's 5-0 win over Real Salt Lake in the Western Conference semi-final.
"He was Robbie tonight," Donovan said. "He hit two fantastic passes to me, scored a great goal, and he was a nightmare to have to defend all night."
Here is Keane's goal, LA Galaxy's second:
