They say never meet your heroes but in this case we'll have to disagree. 

Little Chloe got the shock of her life when her favourite Republic Of Ireland footballer Shane Long turned up out of nowhere while she was out for lunch. 

The meeting came about after Chloe's mam entered a competition ran by Three and the FAI. Not only did the football-mad youngster get to meet her idol, she'll also lead the Irish team out at the Aviva Stadium ahead of their crucial World Cup Qualifier against Serbia tomorrow night. 

Check out the heartwarming clip below. Fair play to all involved. It's almost enough to forgive the Boys In Green for their woeful performance against Georgia on Saturday! Almost.
