A star studded legends match between Liverpool and Ireland is taking place at the Aviva Stadium in April, with funds going towards the rehabilitation of Sean Cox.

The Liverpool fan from Meath was attacked outside Anfield before the Champions League semi-final against Roma last year, and is still recovering from his injuries.

There have been a number of fundraising efforts since the incident, with Roma donating €150,000, while Dublin and Meath recently played a challenge match.

The Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust is working with Liverpool on a number of other initiatives that will help to support his care.
