There are 12 minutes gone in the MLS Cup Playoffs first leg matchup between the New York Red Bulls and Los Angeles Galaxy, and the road team have missed a huge chance to go ahead at Red Bull Arena. If you had questions about Robbie Keane's fitness and whether or not he should be starting, he put those questions to bed with a fantastic strike that narrowly missed going in for LA's opener.
On a counter-attack, set up by a great run by Mike Magee, Keane picked up the ball at the top of the box and placed a shot towards the back post, completely beating Frank Rost but hitting the post. Magee had a chance to finish, but couldn't react quickly enough and put his header of the bar. A huge let off for LA, who should be ahead.
