Robbie Keane was having a bit of a rough week until last night. He was left out of Trap"s squad for the friendly with Greece on Wednesday and then named an "unidentified fan" in the caption of a photo taken of himself, David Beckham and Russell Brand.

Robbie could have been forgiven for wodnering if his notoriety was on the wane. Not a familiar place for the eleventh highest scorer in Premier League history, the player who has commanded the third highest combined transfer fee in the history of the game and, not least, the sixth highest European international goal scorer of all time.

However with all of that rejection and anonymity behind him he was back on the pitch last night for LA galaxy, in their playoff game against the Vancouver Whitecaps. The Galaxy were 1-0 down but an excellent performance from Keane (their top scorer this season) inspired the west coast side to a 2-1 win and sent them through to the conference semi-finals against San Jose. You can watch the highlights below.
