Robbie's Galaxy lost in translation

Robbie keane may have hit the ground running in the MLS but it may take him a little longer to get his head around the local lingo after LA Galaxy was (were) hosed (robbed) in Mexico this week.

Playing in the Concacaf's Champions League, Galaxy suffered after some home-town decisions by the officiating crew (officials) helped Morelia to victory.

Keane had given the Galaxy the lead with a fantastic play (good move) and almost scored after shooting the ball from beyond the midfield (half-way line). But, after the Mexicans had equalised, Keane had a go-ahead goal (to take the lead) ruled out incorrectly for offside. The linesman missed the call (failed to see the decision) and minutes later at the other end Morelia snatched a winner. At least football is a universal language.
