Grealish Dedicates a World Cup Goal to Young Fan with Requested Celebration
Jack Grealish celebrated his first-ever World Cup goal by emulating a dance a young Manchester City super fan asked him to do.
The England star scored his country’s sixth goal in their opening 6-2 win over Iran, converting a brilliant pass from Callum Wilson.
The Manchester City attacker started England’s World Cup opener against Iran on the bench but came on to score his side’s final goal in a 6-2 win. While there was nothing particularly impressive about the goal itself – Newcastle striker Callum Wilson did all the hard work before setting up Grealish with a tap-in – his celebration was very special.
A few weeks ago Grealish met 11-year-old City fan, Finlay. The youngster has cerebral palsy, as does Grealish’s sister, and wrote a letter to the City star thanking him for raising awareness about the condition.
