England's Jack Grealish celebrated his World Cup goal by dancing for an 11-year-old fan called Finlay.
Jack Grealish, 27, made a young fan's dreams come true on Monday when he celebrated his World Cup goal with a dance taught to him by the boy, Finlay.
Finlay, who is a huge fan of the Manchester City player, got to meet Jack recently and asked him to wave his arms in a 'worm' style if he scored a goal.
The football player said he would, and on Monday when he scored against Iran, Jack fulfilled his promise to the boy who suffers from cerebral palsy.
Jack's sister, 19-year-old Holly, also has cerebral palsy, making his connection to Finlay even more important.

England ended up winning the World Cup game against Iran with a final score of 6-2.
Following the game, Jack shared a picture on his Twitter feed of him doing the dance and captioned it with: "For you Finlay."
The pair first got in touch when Finlay wrote to Jack with a letter which read: "I'm a huge Man City and England fan. I have cerebral palsy and I saw that your sister has cerebral palsy too."
The young boy added: "I love the way you are really good with your sister, you really get it. You always have her there with you."

This is when Jack made the promise to Finlay that he would dance for him when he scored his next goal.
