芬利的故事。傑克-格里利什的慶祝活動背後的男孩

為英格蘭足球運動員傑克-格里利什的進球慶祝活動提供靈感的男孩告訴Newsround,當他看到英格蘭足球運動員表演他們特殊的 "蠕蟲 "舞蹈時,他感到 "驚奇 "和 "震驚"。

周一,英格蘭隊在世界盃揭幕戰中以6比2戰勝伊朗隊,傑克打進了第六個進球。

在傑克進球後,這位曼城前鋒遵守了他對患有腦癱的12歲孩子芬利的承諾,即在他下次進球時要跳他們的特殊舞蹈--而這恰好是他在世界盃的第一場比賽中!

芬利告訴我們。"當他真正進球時,我以為他不會這樣做,我以為他已經忘記了,但當他這樣做時,我只是感到驚訝。"

"我被震撼了...我不知道該說什麼,"他補充說。

傑克和芬利是如何相遇的?

芬利第一次見到傑克-格里利什是在他給球員寫了關於他的腦癱的信之後--這種情況會影響人們的平衡和交流。

格雷利什的妹妹霍利也患有腦癱,這位明星說他被芬利的信感動了。

芬利是曼城的超級粉絲,在傑克前往曼城足球學院參加世界盃之前,這位足球運動員給他帶來了驚喜,他因此認識了傑克。

芬利在那裡的 "社區城市 "踢球,他很喜歡。在 "社區城市 "之前,我很沮喪,因為我不能真正踢球。他說:"當我去那裡時,我很高興,因為我真的可以踢足球。

當他們相遇時,芬利最初要求傑克做完整的蠕蟲霹靂舞動作,儘管傑克承認他不能在不受傷的情況下做這個動作,所以他們決定用他們自己的獨特動作來代替。

"他知道與腦癱患者生活在一起是什麼感覺,所以他能理解我和我每天面臨的掙扎,"芬利告訴新聞聯播。

我們問芬利他是否認為英格蘭會把世界盃帶回家,他告訴我們。

"我們將進入決賽,我們將贏得它。加油,英格蘭!"


The boy who inspired England footballer Jack Grealish's goal celebration told Newsround he was"amazed" and "star struck" when he saw the England footballer perform their special 'worm' dance.

Jack scored England's sixth goal when they thrashed Iran 6-2 in their opening World Cup match on Monday.

After Jack's goal, the Manchester City forward kept a promise he made to 12-year-old Finlay, who has cerebral palsy, that he would do their special dance the next time he scored - and it happened to be during his first game of the World Cup!

Finley told us: "When he actually scored I thought he wouldn't do it, I thought he had forgotten, but when he did it, I was just amazed."

"I was star struck... I didn't know what to say," he added.

How did Jack and Finlay meet?

Finlay first met Jack Grealish after he wrote to the player about his cerebral palsy - a condition which can affect people's balance and communication.

Grealish's sister Holly also has cerebral palsy and the star said he was touched by Finlay's letter.

Finley is a huge Manchester City fan and met Jack when the footballer surprised him before he left for the World Cup at Manchester City's Football Academy.

Finlay plays football at City in the Community there, which he loves: "Before City in the Community, I got upset because I couldn't really play football. When I went there, it just made me happy that I could actually play football" he said.

When they met, Finley initially asked Jack to do the full worm breakdance move, although Jack admitted he couldn't do it without getting injured, so they decided to come up with their own unique routine instead.

"He knows what it's like to live with someone with cerebral palsy so he can relate to me and the struggles I face day to day," Finley told Newsround.

We asked Finlay whether he thought England would bring the World Cup home and he told us:

"We're going to get to the final we're going to win it. Come on England!"
