Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane got to delight one of his youngest LA Galaxy fans who posted an adorable video of just how upset she was when she heard the Dubliner was out injured.

Keane will be sidelined for a number of weeks after a routine procedure on his knee, but for one fan, his absence from the Galaxy team was too much to take.

Keane posted a video of little Xyla last week being comforted by her mom as she explained why Robbie wouldn't be lining out at the Stubhub Center for a while.

A meeting between the pair was organised and Ireland's record goalscorer explained that he would be back soon and gave Xyla a Galaxy jersey with 'Keane 7' on the back before posing for photos.
