Robbie Keane lashed home a stunner of a goal for the LA GAlaxy overnight, but the MLS champs lost to the Portland Timbers.

In a few weeks time we are going to need Robbie to be in top form if we are to see off Bosnia and make it to Euro 2016 via the playoffs.

And the signs are good based on this gem of a goal the Irish goalscoring hero lashed home last night.

There is more than a touch of Shane Long's rasper against Germany about this effort, though beating Manuel Neuer might be more difficult than beating Adam Larsen Kwarasey, who was in nets for the Timbers.

Robbie would score another in the game but his side went down 5-2, more than a shock result.

Hopefully Robbie can keep this form up...
