The old phrase goes 'out of sight, out of mind' and while it might not apply to all of our Irish exports, it most certainly counts for some.

Robbie Keane remains a huge figure in the MLS with LA Galaxy, but compatriot Kevin Doyle is decidedly further away from the spotlight. 

There was no appearance from him despite being named in Ireland's World Cup qualifying fixtures against Georgia and Moldova. In fact, his last involved with Ireland in March of this year in a friendly against Switzerland, before being left out of the Euro 2016 squad.

At 33 he is still continuing to fruitfully ply his trade with MLS side Colorado Rapids and last night scored two vital goals to send his side top of the Western Conference with two games to play.

The pick of his goals came in the first half, when he dived on to the end of a perfectly weighted cross to open the scoring against San Jose Earthquakes.
