Robbie Keane rolls back the years as LA Galaxy crush Champions League opponents

Age is just a number...

Move over Manchester United, LA Galaxy had the stand-out Champions League win of the week.

The reigning MLS Cup champions beat Guatemalan team Comunicaciones 5-0 in their CONCACAF Champions League group game, and 35-year-old Robbie Keane channeled his younger self with a sublime piece of skill.

Keane came off the bench to score twice in the win, which leaves the 1999/2000 champions with two wins and 10 goals from their home group games.

It may allow them to rest the likes of Keane, Steven Gerrard and Giovani dos Santos for the reverse fixtures against Comunicaciones and Trinidadian club Central.
