After scoring for the Galaxy against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night, Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane paid tribute to James Nolan, the 21-year old Ireland fan whose body was found at the bottom of a river in Bydgoszcz after accidentally drowning while out in Poland to support his national team…

Said Keane:

“It was just a gesture because the Irish people are very close and they stick with each other through good times and bad times. James was a big, big soccer fan and it was a shame, so it was just a show of respect really.”

Well played Sir, well played.
