JACK GREALISH dedicated his goal in England’s 6-2 World Cup thrashing over Iran to disabled 11-year-old fan Finlay.

The Manchester City star came off the bench to score the sixth as the Three Lions got their campaign off to a flier.

Grealish put the gloss on the victory late on in what is England’s best ever start to a World Cup.

After tapping home from Callum Wilson’s unselfish cutback, Grealish wheeled away in celebration.

And the 27-year-old wiggled his arms in the air in dedication to Finlay.

Grealish met City fan Finlay, who suffers from cerebral palsy, shortly before jetting out to Qatar with England.

Finlay 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 Grealish did exactly that after bagging against Iran.


It was his first goal since he scored in a 3-0 win over Wolves back in September.

But the Three Lions ace didn’t forget Finlay as he celebrated.

The superb Jude Bellingham put Gareth Southgate’s England ahead against Iran with a looping header 10 minutes before half-time.

Raheem Sterling netted in between a Bukayo Saka brace, before Marcus Rashford and Grealish completed the rout.
