Kieran scores town hon­our

Irish Daily Mirror - - IRISH DAILY MIRROR -

WORLD Cup goal scorer Kieran Trip­pier is be­ing granted the free­dom of his home­town fol­low­ing calls from his dad Chris.

The 27-year-old was hailed by Bury town hall chiefs for his Colom­bia penalty and free kick in the semis against Croa­tia.

Rishi Shori, leader of the coun­cil in Greater Manch­ester, said: “He is only the third English­man to have scored in a World Cup semi-final and cer­tainly the first from Bury.”
