Keith Vaz meeting Brandon Fernandes

Keith recently met with rising Indian football star Brandon Fernandes. The 18 year old from Goa, widely recognised as the first Indian footballer good enough to play in the top flight of English football, is currently undergoing trials at Leicester City Football Club.

This is not the first time Keith has met Brandon. In 2008 as part of the Leicester-India Football Initiative a team of U14s from the city visited Goa in India to play a local team.

The initiative, designed to develop the already excellent links between India and Britain, saw the team play the Goa XI in two matches. Brandon Fernandes played in both of those matches.
