Shane Long gave little Chloe Brennan the surprise of her life at the Ireland team hotel, as he gate-crashed her lunch to reveal she will be mascot for the crucial World Cup qualifier against Serbia on Tuesday.

Chloe is a huge fan of Southampton striker Long and she was stunned as her idol walked in with an Ireland shirt on a silver platter as part of the Three mobile #TheCallUp campaign.

Long revealed that he was a Leeds United fans when he was growing up and posed for photos with Chloe and her family as the youngster said the meeting was ‘the best day of her life’.
