Liverpool take on Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday, and they will be led onto the Wembley pitch by a young fan with leukaemia.

Adam Lacy, 12, will walk out with his heroes under the famous arch—and he even intends to wear a cap like Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

The talented young footballer was chosen for the occasion after being put forward by CHICS, a charity that supports the families of children with cancer.

He will attend the match in London with his dad, Paul, while his older brother, Matthew, and mum, Lynne, will watch from home.

"Adam doesn’t like being the centre of attention, and he takes it all in his stride," Lynne told the Liverpool Echo (via the Mirror). "I’m excited but I’m also nervous as well because of Adam’s condition and hoping he’ll be well enough to go. It’s always in the back of your mind. When we told him, he was over the moon. I think it’s probably every little boy’s dream to go to Wembley."
