Earnshaw keeps promise to Luca.

LITTLE Luca Williams has been visited by Cardiff City and Wales footballer Robert Earnshaw.

The little boy from Cardiff had to have his legs partially amputated in January 2012 after suffering meningococcal septicaemia.

His parents Mo Syed and Sian Williams are trying to raise PS1.5m to buy Luca prosthetic legs which are not available on the NHS.

Earnshaw tweeted on Friday how he had promised to visit Luca six months ago but that he couldn't keep to it on that occasion because he was in Israel, where he played football on loan.

The striker said he had promised to visit an "incredible little friend of mine" and was excited about making the visit.

The footballer stuck to his word and told his 68,000 followers on Twitter how he was going to "chill and hang out" with Luca at his home and was taking his own son along, too.

He wrote: "This afternoon I'm going to go chill and hang out with @for_luca and I'm taking my little boy to go meet him. I'm excited."
