Robbie Keane’s LA Galaxy through to MLS Conference Semis

Keane will be looking to add a fourth MLS title to his trophy cabinet.

Robbie Keane and the LA Galaxy have set up a clash with the Colorado Rapids in the MLS Western Conference semi-finals.

A 3-1 victory over Real Salt Lake, sealed by a brace from Emmanuel Boateng, means that Irishman Keane will have another chance to add to his already impressive American resume.

Since moving to the Galaxy in 2011, Keane’s time has been trophy-laden, with MLS Championships in 2011, 2012 and 2014.

Now 36, the all-time leading goalscorer for the Republic of Ireland will hope to steer his side to one more title before likely hanging up his boots in the not-so-distant future.

Their opponents in the two-legged affair, in the form of the Colorado Rapids, finished one place above the Galaxy in the Western Conference, and have fellow Irish striker Kevin Doyle amongst their ranks.

The fixtures, which on paper look too close to call, will take place on the 30th of October in LA and November 6th in Colorado.

In winning his fourth MLS title, Robbie Keane would further solidify his stance as the finest ever import in the MLS. While many would consider the standard of football in America to be of a fairly low standard, the relative struggles of the likes of Kaka and Steven Gerrard prove that the MLS is no joke, and appropriately highlight just how impressive Keane’s time with the Galaxy has been.
