A YOUNG football fanatic from Anglesey who beat cancer led the Wales players out for their crucial 2-0 Euro 2020 qualifier over Hungary.

On Tuesday night, Maisy Fitzmaurice, 10, joined brother Mylo, 11, as mascots for the Welsh football team as Ryan Giggs' men qualified for Euro 2020 courtesy of an Aaron Ramsey double.

The pair's father Tony says it was the "perfect end" to what has been a difficult year for the family.

In April, Maisy was diagnosed with germ cell cancer, just days after her tenth birthday.

During the months that followed, she underwent a series of operations and a course of chemotherapy to eradicate the cancer, which had also spread to her lungs and her liver.

Positive news eventually arrived in September, when Tony announced his daughter had been given the all clear by doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hosptial, Liverpool.

She rang the bell to signal the end of her treatment at Alder Hey on September 24, alongside her dad, mum Emma and Mylo.

Speaking after seeing his children stand alongside Wales' superstars, Tony said: "It was always going to be a very emotional and very proud moment after the year we’ve had.

"Maisy and Mylo both spent the morning with the players getting pictures and autographs. Then, the atmosphere at the game at night was electric."

Locally, Maisy is known to be a devoted follower of her "favourite team in the world" - Amlwch Ladies football team, who all in return did their bit to support her during her fight against cancer.

Back in September, Maisy was a mascot for the Wales ladies team as they drew 2-2 with Northern Ireland.

During her visit down South, she had also met some of the Wales men's team - including manager Ryan Giggs who she handed over a special Childhood Cancer Awareness Month badge to.

Giggs was later spotted on live TV wearing the badge Maisy gave him during Wales' 2-1 World Cup qualifier win over Azerbaijan.

He was once again spotted wearing the badge during the match against Hungary on Tuesday night.

Wales' 2-0 win sees them through to the Euro 2020 tournament, which will be taking place across 12 countries, including Russia and Azerbaijan.

It is the second time in a row that Wales have qualified for the tournament, with Euro 2016 providing what was arguably the greatest moments in Welsh footballing history during Chris Coleman's side's route to the semi-finals.
