This Robbie Keane strike will surely be a contender for MLS Goal of the Season (Video)

Robbie Keane has offered Martin O'Neill a timely reminder of his prowess in front of goal.

The LA Galaxy striker may have lost his status as automatic starter for the Republic of Ireland, but, with Shane Long injured, and Jonathan Walters suspended, they will have to call on Keane for next month's Euro 2016 play-off against Bosnia.

And if he was to score a goal like this then that'd be just great.

Keane ran onto a lofted, long pass, got between the two Portland Timbers central defenders and smashed a volley into the top corner.

Admittedly, the Portland players put no pressure on Galaxy's midfield, and a 35-year-old Keane (who commentators said was not a 'speed demon' moments before) shouldn't be able to run away from a defence like that, but what a finish.

Here it is again in super slo-mo from a few different angles.

Oh, even though Keane scored two, Galaxy lost to Portland 5-2.
