Robbie Keane scored the winning goal late in the second period of extra time to give the Los Angeles Galaxy the team's fifth MLS Cup, over the New England Revolution. The Galaxy is the league's first five-time champions. Gyasi Zardes scored earlier for the Galaxy. There was a sellout crowd of 27,000 at the StubHub Center in Carson.
The match was the final contest for Galaxy veteran Landon Donovan, who announced earlier that he would retire from active playing.
Reclusive owner Philip Anschutz joined the team on the podium to receive the cup, which has his name on it, because Major League Soccer is like that.
