Robbie Keane scored a hat-trick as LA Galaxy came from behind to defeat Real Saltlake while team-mate Landon Donovan hailed the Irish captain ‘world class’.

Keane’s goal haul took him to 10 for the season as the Dubliner continues to hit form ahead of Ireland’s crucial World Cup double-header in September.

Keane and LA Galaxy are back in action in midweek against Costa Rican side Cartagines in the opening game of the Concacaf Champions League group stage.
