'The King Is Back': Robbie Keane Returns From Injury With Two Vintage Robbie Keane Goals

'The King Is Back': Robbie Keane Returns From Injury With Two Vintage Robbie Keane Goals
By Gavan Casey

Robbie Keane netted his 76th and 77th goals in 112 games for LA Galaxy on his return from knee surgery which kept him sidelined for six weeks.

Keane's outrageously prolific form in front of goal has made him a household name in Los Angeles, but Ireland's all-time leading scorer also has 43 assists to his name in MLS - no mean feat, regardless of the league you're playing in.

Earlier this evening, The Galaxy made mincemeat of New England Revolution in the first half to take a 3-0 lead, and our Robbie was on hand to apply the finishing touches to two of his side's goals.

And touches were all it took as Keane pounced for arguably two of the easiest of the 80 or so tap-ins he's scored throughout his storied career.

Ireland's captain was replaced by Steven Gerrard at the 60-minute mark, and Galaxy emerged 4-2 victors in the MLS Cup fixture at the Home Depot.

It will certainly come as good news to Martin O'Neill that Keane was looking positionally sharp on his return from a lengthy layoff, but surely even Ireland fans couldn't be as thrilled as the LA Galaxy and MLS fans who welcomed 'The King' back to action.
