Dreams do come true!! Mikey DeFalco's dream of meeting his soccer idol Riyad Mahrez became a reality over Spring Break when the Make a Wish foundation set up the pair.
Mikey, along with his family, were flown to Leicester, England, to meet the magician at a 1st team training session. Afterwards, Mikey then got to spend 1on1 time with Mahrez and was able to show off some of his own tricks! And if that wasn't enough, Mikey personally escorted Mahrez onto the King Power field for the Premier League game vs Stoke on April 1st.
06 boys Red player Mikey DeFalco suffers from Cystic Fibrosis but that doesn't stop him from pursuing his dream to be a professional soccer player someday. Fantastic experience for young Mikey and there isn't a more deserved kid out there!!
A huge thank you to the Make A Wish foundation and Leicester City FC for making the trip a once in a lifetime experience for Mikey.
