Neymar honors Kobe Bryant with goal celebration (VIDEO)

PARIS (AP) – Nantes fans paid an emotional tribute to Emiliano Sala before Sunday’s home game against Bordeaux, a year after the Argentine striker’s death in a plane crash shook the soccer world. Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar paid a tribute of his own to NBA great Kobe Bryant after scoring against Lille.

Sala died after the single-engine aircraft carrying him from Nantes to his new club Cardiff crashed near the Channel Island of Guernsey on Jan. 21 last year. His body was recovered from the wreckage two weeks later. He was 28 years old and entering his prime years as a striker. The pilot, David Ibbotson, also died.
