A DISABLED schoolboy has revealed his incredible reaction after England star Jack Grealish made good on his promise to dedicate a World Cup goal to him.
The Manchester City star wiggled his arms in the air as a nod to 11-year-old Finlay Fisher, who has cerebral palsy.

Young Finaly wrote to Grealish after learning that the Three Lions ace’s sister also suffers from the condition.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain this morning he said: “At first I thought he’d forget.”
However, the youngster revealed that when he saw the special celebration he yelled “he remembered” with glee.
Finaly’s mum added: “I think he was a bit starstruck.”

He got in touch with Grealish, who’s sister Holly also suffers from cerebral palsy, with an emotional letter, before Grealish wrote his own letter back.
The Premier League then shared footage of them meeting in person, with the City star telling Finlay he would dedicate a celebration to him when he next scored.
Initially Finlay hilariously asked for Grealish to do the worm dance, but after the England star admitted he couldn’t, Finlay settled for a wiggle of the arms.

And the youngster was delighted at the special tribute.
Speaking to BBC Radio Manchester, Finlay said: “Oh my God, that’s the best thing ever.
“He’s my best mate, I love you Grealish.”
The Manchester City star came off the bench to score the sixth as the Three Lions got their campaign off to a flier.
He put the gloss on the victory late on in what is England’s best ever start to a World Cup.
