A YOUNG football fan who trains with Burton Albion will be living his dream tonight, when he walks out onto the pitch at Wembley with the England football team.
Larell King will be joining the boys ahead of the crucial qualifying match which will lead the team to the World Cup in Brazil.
The 11-year-old, who recently signed to play with the Brewer's under 12 squad, has been selected as a flag bearer for the match, which is against Poland, after he was put forward by the East Staffordshire Rights and Equality Council.
Larell's mum Stacey Parker said: "It's such an exciting experience for him – he's a big England fan and he likes all of the players."
The Derby Moore Community Sports College pupil will have spent the afternoon watching the England team practice, have his photograph taken with the team and then carry the flag.
Sam Rose, who coaches Larell, said: "To be involved with an England match so closely will be brilliant. I'm sure the other boys would give their right arm to be in his position."
The game begins at 8pm.
