FIFA 23 - EA update Jack Grealish's dynamic image with World Cup dance that he dedicated to a fan

England hit six goals past Iran in their opening game to make it a second consecutive World Cup where they have netted six in one match, following on from their 6-1 drumming of Panama at the 2018 finals in Russia.

Jack Grealish came off the bench at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha to tap home England's sixth goal of the game in the 90th minute, which he celebrated with a questionable dance move.

The 27-year-old pulled out the dance move in order to keep a promise to Finlay, a young Manchester City supporter with cerebral palsy who wrote a heartwarming letter to the forward earlier this season.

EA has since updated The England international's FIFA 23 Ultimate Team Path to Glory dynamic image in homage to his World Cup celebration.

Dream come true

Jack Grealish fulfilled a lifelong dream by scoring at a World Cup finals competition whilst simultaneously helping a young fan's dream come true.

Ahead of the World Cup, 11-year-old Finlay had written to Grealish after learning that the player's sister, Hollie, also has cerebral palsy.

As a thank you for the message, the City winger wrote back to his young fan and sent him a signed shirt.

The former Aston Villa player went one step further with a surprise meeting at the Etihad Campus earlier this month.

During their conversation, Grealish promised to perform a celebration for Finlay the next time he scored, which you can watch in the Tweet from the man himself above.

Grealish's next goal came not for City but for his country on the biggest international stage when fellow substitute Callum Wilson raced clear before laying England's sixth and final goal against Iran on a plate for his teammate.

After finishing the chance, Grealish did not fail to deliver.

Looking good, Jack

EA has felt the heartwarming reaction to this story from fans across the nation and has changed the dynamic image of Grealish's World Cup Path to Glory item as a result.

Take a look at the updated version of the Englishman's Path to Glory item featuring the infamous dance below.

It's fair to say this is a nice touch from EA and little Finlay will love seeing his celebration implemented into the game too!

We would not be surprised to see more World Cup items updated with goal celebration images in Ultimate Team.
