We're here! Robbie Keane arrives at LAX today with his wife Claudine ahead of his debut with LA Galaxy

They're likely to rival the Beckhams for the title of most glamorous couple in football.

So Robbie and Claudine Keane made sure they were camera-ready when they arrived at LAX yesterday.

The couple left Heathrow in tracksuits - Claudine's a typical WAG-style blue velour type- but they appeared to have transformed mid-air before arriving in Los Angeles looking groomed and gorgeous.

The husband and wife faced scenes reminiscent of when David and Victoria Beckham arrived at the Los Angeles airport in 2007 so the footballer could begin his contract with LA Galaxy.

Irish striker Keane, 31, is joining the soccer ace from MLS club Tottenham Hotspur on a two-year contract, and judging by his face, he was ecstatic about the Hollywood move.

Claudine, 27, sported perfect make-up and shiny blonde hair which hardly lent itself to comfortable travel.

Keane changed from a black tracksuit and white T-shirt into a printed tee underneath a denim shirt and black jeans. He kept on the same comfortable white sneakers.

He waved to assembled photographers and fans as he emerged from the terminal with a grinning Claudine by his side.

The couple happily posed for photographers, with Robbie leaning in to kiss his wife's cheek at one point.

Keane has said it was a 'dream come true' to join the MLS and revealed that David Beckham had played a role in the move after speaking to him about Galaxy when the former England captain trained with Spurs in January.

Warm welcome: The Beckhams were greeted with a crowd of fans and photographers when they arrived in Los Angeles in 2007

'When David Beckham came and trained at Spurs recently he couldn't speak highly enough about the Galaxy, their fans and the league in general, so I can’t wait to get over and get started,' he said.

'I am delighted, honoured and very excited to be joining the LA Galaxy.'

Galaxy boss Bruce Arena said: 'Robbie Keane will be a great addition to our club. I have followed his career and have always respected his ability as a competitor and a goalscorer.

'I believe that he brings qualities in and around the penalty area that we have been lacking.

Hopefully, he will be another piece of the puzzle in our quest for the Supporters’ Shield and an MLS Cup championship as well as to advance to the next round of the Champions League.'
