Robbie Keane has made it five goals in two games for LA Galaxy after striking twice in their 2-0 win over CS Cartaginés of Costa Rica in the CONCACAF Champions League.
Keane finished from two Landon Donovan passes to give Galaxy victory in the opening match of the competition at the StubHub Center.
The Irish striker was following up a hat-trick in a 4-2 success over Real Salt Lake at the weekend.
The first goal was finished from a tight angle with goalkeeper Wardy Alfaro unable to keep the ball out and in stoppage time he breached the Cartaginés offside trap for a second of the night.
The Galaxy return to league action on Saturday evening away to Vancouver.
Ireland take on Sweden and Austria in vital World Cup qualifiers next month.
