CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Robbie Keane scored two second-half goals to lift the Los Angeles Galaxy to a 2-0 victory Tuesday night over Costa Rican club Cartagines in their group opener in the CONCACAF Champions League.
Keane gave the Galaxy the lead in the 66th minute, taking a pass from Landon Donovan and firing toward the goalmouth from a tight angle on the left. The ball went off goalkeeper Wardy Alfaro's hands and rolled slowly into the net.
Keane netted his second 3 minutes into stoppage time, beating Alfaro one-on-one after taking another feed from Donovan.
"You see the difference when Landon came on," said Keane, who scored three in the Galaxy's MLS victory Saturday night over Real Salt Lake. "We're very in tune with each other. We know each other's runs and where we want to be, so it was the case with the two goals, and lucky enough for us we got the two goals. It was a decent performance. It wasn't brilliant, but it was decent."
The Galaxy don't play in the regional club championship until Sept. 18, when they're home against El Salvador's Isidro Metapan.
