For Christmas, Andrew [Whelan, from Stradbally, Co Laois] got the present of a lifetime from Santa Claus; two tickets to see his football idol Robbie Brady line out for Norwich against Cardiff City. But just days before the game, Robbie completed a transfer to Premier League side Burnley.
Last week, at the team hotel, Robbie surprised Andrew with his own Ireland jersey and gave him #TheCallUp to be a mascot for Republic of Ireland vs Iceland on Tuesday [tomorrow] night.
A clearly shell-shocked Andrew was delighted to meet his hero and is looking forward to the game on Tuesday.
