Fans of the Greek national squad, which made it into the top 16 of the World Cup this week, have launched a Facebook campaign, "O JAY PAEI Mundial," in a bid to convince the Greek Soccer Federation (EPO) to spring for the tickets to get an 11-year-old Scottish fan of team striker Georgios Samaras to Brazil in time to see Greece square off with Costa Rica on Sunday.
Jay Beatty, a fervent 11-year-old Celtic fan who has Down's Syndrome, has managed to meet all the players of his favorite team and its management. He is also an avid fan of Samaras, a former Celtic star who picked up the young boy out of the crowd when Celtic lifted the Scottish Premiership trophy in May.
Jay's father recently posted a video showing his son dressed in blue and celebrating Greece's victory over Ivory Coast.
"It's not often you see Jay in Blue but he had to get a Greece T-shirt," he comments below the photograph posted on Facebook.
The "O JAY PAEI Mundial" Facebook page has already garnered more than 50,600 "likes."
