Little Adam Laher’s dreams came true as he strode on to the hallowed turf at Wembley alongside his England heroes.

The youngster was the envy of millions across the country as they watched him walk hand-in-hand with one of the England stars before their match with Denmark last night (Wednesday).

Ten-year-old Adam, who lives in Batley, walked out in front of 68,573 fans with Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling.

Adam, who won the chance to be a Player Escort by winning a competition on the McDonald’s KickStart website, said: “It was brilliant to walk out onto the pitch next to all those England players.

“The noise that the fans made was amazing and I can’t wait to tell all of my friends at school about it.”

England eventually ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a goal by Daniel Sturridge.
