Robbie Keane Holds ‘RIP James Nolan’ Shirt Aloft, Tribute To Ireland Fan Found Dead At Euro 2012 (Video)

By Chris Wright

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.
