BY NOW YOU’VE probably woken up to the news that Robbie Keane scored the winning goal in extra-time as LA Galaxy won their fifth MLS title.

During the post-game press conference, Keane – understandably – wanted to focus on the positives.

However, one reporter insisted on questioning the Ireland captain on a miss earlier in the game when Keane should have probably passed to ball to retiring team-mate Landon Donovan:

Keane though, was having none of it.

“I only missed one chance, so, it wasn’t that bad. Jesus, you’re trying to kill me here, we just won the championship and [I] scored the winning goal.

“You’re on about the miss I made.”
