Jack Grealish A young man with cerebral palsy kept his promise to a young fan with a celebration after scoring his first World Cup goal for England against Iran on Monday. Grealish tapped home the final goal from close range in a 6-2 win and marked the moment with a broad smile and outstretched arms, rolling them in waves. The Manchester City midfielder was keeping a promise to 11-year-old Finlay. Finlay met his favorite player after writing a letter to Grealish, whose sister Holly also has cerebral palsy.

“I wish there were more people like you in the world who treat people with disabilities like anyone else,” Finley wrote.

Grealish, 27, followed up with a letter of his own and also made a surprise visit to meet Finlay at a football session run by City’s charity programme.

It was there that he promised to dedicate his next goal to the boy with Grealish’s hand gesture recreated in Qatar.

“I met young Finlay about a month ago,” Grealish said after Monday’s match.

“She was obviously fine. She has cerebral palsy, like my little sister, so she asked me to do a celebration for her and luckily it came at the World Cup.

“That’s what it’s all about. For me, it’s just a celebration. It will mean the world to him I’m sure, especially that I’m doing it at the World Cup.

“So Finley, this is for you.”
