Xander Bailey once dreamed of taking to the pitch as a professional soccer player. 

And thanks to Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Seattle Sounders, his dream became a reality on Saturday night. 

Bailey, an 18-year-old who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, had his wish of suiting up for the MLS club granted. Not only did he suit up, though, he started the club's friendly against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday night and got a shot on goal in the opening seconds. 

Watch here: 

He was even signed to a contract. Two thumbs up for the Sounders.
