Keane, Galaxy Crush Toothless Toronto FC 4-0

New, comments

The MLS Cup Champions looked the part against Toronto FC tonight, thoroughly outplaying them in a 4-0 victory that could have seen ever more goals.

Make that 10 straight games that Toronto FC have lost to the LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer. The defending MLS champions absolutely dominated the visiting Toronto en route to a 4-0 victory that never looked in question. Toronto, without Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore, looked completely out of attacking ideas for most of the match. As a result they are now 7-7-2 on the season, and are having difficultly staying about .500.

Robbie Keane had a dominant performance for the Galaxy, scoring three goals and doubling his output for the season. The first came off of a penalty just nine minute into the match, the second was off of nice inter-play by the Galaxy and the third a poor backpass from Justin Morrow that just highlighted how badly this match went for Toronto. Sebastian Lletget had the fourth goal while Brian Rowe had the clean sheet for the Galaxy, though he didn't have many saves to make.

Further analysis of the match will be up later, until then enjoy this brilliant assist from Morrow on to give Robbie Keane a hattrick.
