Japan Tragedy Marked

The terrible events of last week in Japan, and the ongoing nuclear nightmare were remembered last night by the players of Liverppool FC and Sporting Braga and a crowd of 44,000 at Anfield Stadium.

A minute's silence was held prior to the Europa League second leg match in memory of those who had lost their lives and the many more who have lost almost everything in the earthquake and tsunami.

A small tribute in a far-off land but it shows that the victims will not be forgotten.

To see my photographs of the game itself which ended in a nil-nil draw and thus ended Liverpool's European campaign, please visit

The game marked the home debut of Andy Carroll, who with a transfer price of £35m, became England's most expensive player ever when he moved to the Reds from Newcastle United in January 2011.
