Wayne Rooney was able to make the wish of one child true when the Manchester United striker visited a young lad named Uzair on behalf of the England Footballers Foundation.

An opportunity to meet Rooney was the ultimate dream of Uzair, who made a wish from his hospital that he would one day be able to see his Old Trafford hero in the flesh.

Rays of Sunshine were able to make that happen, and Rooney spent time with Uzair playing card games and meeting his family and friends.

Uzair even had the chance to grill Rooney about all things Manchester United and England, with the 27-year-old set to play for his country in two crucial World Cup qualifiers over the next week.

After his time with Uzair, Rooney told of how much he enjoyed putting a smile on the face of the youngster, and explained how much he enjoys being able to meet his fans.

"It was great to meet him, and it is great to see the smiles on kids' faces when you meet them. I get a lot of joy out of it," Rooney told FATV.

He added: "If I had heroes as a young lad I got to meet them, I know how it feels.

"It's great to be on the other side now where you can go and make someone feel that way. We're in a privileged position where we can help in that way and it's great to see."
