Extra security was brought in for tonight's Liverpool match

Tributes were paid to Irish man Sean Cox ahead of tonight's clash between Liverpool and AS Roma in the Champions League.

He remains in a serious condition in hospital following an unprovoked attack before last week's match in Liverpool.

Two Italian men have been charged over the attack on the Irish Liverpool fan last Tuesday.

Both clubs have paid tribute to the 53-year-old in the days since the assault, with Roma players wearing shirts reading 'Forza Sean' during training yesterday.

Supporters have also been showing their support around the Italian capital.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has also written to Sean's GAA club in Dunboyne to show the club's support.
