WATCH: Robbie Keane signals return to form with brace against New England Revolution

Ireland's record goalscorer has recovered from knee surgery ahead of the European Championships in France

Robbie Keane marked his return to fitness last night with a brace against New England Revolution, boosting his chances of being included in Martin O'Neill's squad for this summer's European Championships.

The 35-year-old has recovered from knee surgery and was on hand to tap-in two close range efforts for LA Galaxy.

Goals from Steven Gerrard and Giovani dos Santos rounded off the victory for the Galaxy, making them the first team in the MLS to reach 300 wins.

Ireland's opponents Belgium suffered a major setback over the weekend when Vincent Kompany was ruled out of the European Championships in June.
