The world has paid tribute to Emiliano Sala as the body that was pulled from the plane wreck on Monday was identified as the Argentine striker.

Sala had signed for Cardiff City last month but his place was reported missing over the English Channel on 21st January.

Since the confirmation, the footballing community has given their respects and prayers for Sala, led by his sister Romina.

His former club Nantes have since retired the #9 shirt he wore for the club.

Among those to pay tribute to the 28-year-old were fellow Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero, PSG’s Kylian Mbappe and England legend Wayne Rooney.
