Three-year-old Xyla meets her hero Robbie Keane after heart-warming video goes viral

ROBBIE Keane’s injury has ruled him out of action for five weeks and for one young LA Galaxy fan the news was particularly hard to take.

The Ireland captain shared a video on his Facebook page last week in which an adorable three-year-old soccer fan cries to her mother upon learning of his recovery from knee surgery.


Xyla is seen being comforted by her mother when she says that she wants to visit the Dubliner in hospital – but she compromises by agreeing to make him a get well soon card.

Following the video, the club organised a surprise meeting between Xyla and her idol – who gave her an LA Galaxy shirt with ‘Keane 7’ on the back.

Watch the video of Xyla meeting Robbie below:
