Barcelona's Xavi Dedicates Champions League Goal to Cancer Sufferer

At the Champions League, Barcelona star Xavi carried out his promise to a young child who suffers from leukemia.

Early this week at the Champions League quarter-final Paris, the midfielder scored Barcelona's second goal of the evening, bringing the score to 1-2 -- and sparking an extra-special celebration, according to EuroSport.com.  After Xavi scored the point, he touched his head in acknowledgment to Miquel, a 10-year-old soccer fan of his.

Sports Mole reported that the soccer star had heard about Miquel on a radio program about cancer and the young boys struggle inspired him to make the young mans dream to meet him come true. 

According to Barcelona's official website, Xavi showed up at Miquel's hospital with a signed shirt and two promises.

"When you are cured, I’ll take you to a Barça training session," Xavi told him. "If I score against Milan, I’ll dedicate it to you by rubbing my head."
