LA Galaxy Vs. New York Red Bulls Live, MLS Cup Playoffs 2011: Robbie Keane Messes Up 3-On-1

LA Galaxy forward Chad Barrett tries to make up for his error in impeding Robbie Keane as his striker was lining up to shoot on Frank Rost's goal by winning a 50-50 ball about ten yards from the New York Red Bulls penalty box, allowing the host to start a three on one break. Considering that one is Team Ream, it would take something of a miracle to stop the Galaxy regaining their lead there, and that miracle came through a catastrophic failure of Keane's brain - with two passing options he decided to walk the ball straight into Ream's foot and New York can clear.

Harkes watch: "That's what makes the game beautiful. Anything can happen!" I hope so, John. I hope so.

New York's next attack of note comes from a clever pair of flicks from Thierry Henry and Dax McCarty, which would unleash Luke Rodgers once more if not for the little striker being just as confused as the defence, leaving him running in zig-zags as Omar Gonzalez rather unconvincingly mops up. I think that that's the first time they've put the ball into the attacking third since the Teemu Tainio substitution.
