Bradley Lowery Leads Out England Team As Mascot With Jermain Defoe
Little hero Bradley Lowery was the England Mascot for their World Cup qualifier against Lithuania this afternoon.
The five-year old was invited by The FA to walk out with the players at Wembley, following on from serving as mascot for his beloved Sunderland.
Bradley has appeared on numerous occasions as a mascot for The Black Cats as his family have tried to raise funds for the youngster to get treatment in America for the rare cancer.
Sunderland's in-form Jermain Defoe received his first England call-up since 2013 who has struck an adorable friendship with Bradley.
Defore carried him out for their Premier League clash against Everton last month. And the pair are reunited on the international scene.
Bradley, from Blackhall Colliery in County Durham, has become a huge hit with the British public thanks to his immense bravery and incredible smile.
Unfortunately his family revealed in a Facebook post last month that during scans doctors found a new tumour growing in the youngsters lower back.

And the family revealed how knocked by the news they are, "As you can imagine we are devastated and heart broken with this news as I really wanted the new treatment to work.
"We are not sure where we go from here as it will depend on his bone marrow biopsy results."
The world has well and truly fallen for Bradley who's beaming smile has endeared and captured the hearts of everyone.
We hope Bradley and his family enjoyed their experience of a lifetime at the England game.
