MLS Cup Final 2011, Los Angeles Galaxy Vs. Houston Dynamo Live: Robbie Keane Has Goal Wrongly Disallowed

Robbie Keane has scored - and been cheated out of -  the 2011 MLS Cup Final's opening goal. David Beckham played an inch-perfect ball to the Ireland forward, and Keane's lethal finishing instincts kick in, burying a shot past Tally Hall to make it 1-0. But that goal counts in moral term only - Ricardo Salazar had already blown his whistle for offside, despite Keane being level when the ball was played. That's a terrible, terrible decision, and if the LA Galaxy don't win this game they are going to absolutely flip out over it.

Anyway, the Houston Dynamo have looked a little better in attack despite deserving to be behind, and they're starting to put Josh Saunders's goal under some pressure. Whether or not they can sustain it is an open question, but this is far better than the horror show they've been putting on for the rest of the match.
