Liam Miller tribute

Some massive stars here.

The Liam Miller tribute game will take place on Tuesday.

Following a seemingly never-ending saga, the game will be played in Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork.

45,000 people are expected to turn out to honour the late midfielder, who passed away in February at the age of 36 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

And it looks like it’s going to be a really special occasion.

The Ireland management team will be in charge of the two sides, with Roy Keane managing the Manchester United team, and Martin O’Neill leading the Celtic/Republic of Ireland team.

We hope none of the United lads plan on dropping out with a late injury…

And if you think the managerial panel is star-studded, wait until you see the players.

The United team includes some of the best players of the modern era, such as Rio Ferdinand, Denis Irwin, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Andy Cole and way more.

The Celtic/Republic of Ireland isn’t too shabby either. They have players like Robbie Keane, Damien Duff, Richard Dunne, Kevin Doyle, Stylian Petrov and John Hartson available.

Keane’s assistant manager Mike Phelan shared the full list of players involved on Monday morning. Have a look here:

It should be a cracking game, and a fitting tribute to Miller.

If you’re planning on catching the match on TV, Virgin Media Sport will kick off their coverage at 2pm, with highlights being shown on Virgin Media One that evening.
