Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane missed an injury-time penalty as LA Galaxy opened up their MLS season with a 1-0 defeat at home to Real Salt Lake.

Keane, who was excused from Ireland’s 2-1 defeat to Serbia to prepare for the start of the American campaign, said of the miss: “It was fine, it was right in the corner. It was a good save, that’s the way it goes.”

Keane’s fellow Ireland striker Jon Walters did have success from the spot but was later sent off during Stoke’s 1-1 Premier League draw at Norwich
