BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — Robbie Keane scored two goals on his 32nd birthday and the Los Angeles Galaxy beat the Chicago Fire 2-0 on Sunday.
Keane's second multigoal game of the season helped the Galaxy snap a two-match losing streak, and extended the Fire's winless streak to two games (0-1-1).
Keane scored on a penalty kick in the 24th minute after Chicago defender Jalil Anibaba blocked a pass with his right hand at the edge of the penalty area.
He beat goalkeeper Sean Johnson again in the 78th minute, making the most of midfielder Landon Donovan's pinpoint pass. Donovan's feed allowed Keane to break open on the left side.
Keane celebrated the second score with a pair of somersaults.
