Daniel McGee from Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland, got a big surprise after travelling for his first Blues game.

A young Chelsea fan was left "ecstatic" after an impromptu kickabout with Brazilian star Willian during a visit to Stamford Bridge.

A video posted on Facebook showed 11-year-old aspiring footballer Daniel McGee casually kicking a ball about with the Chelsea star after he approached him with a ball.

The family had travelled to London from Co Tyrone in Northern Ireland for Daniel's first ever game, staying at the football ground's hotel.

Having already received a quick handshake from star midfielder Eden Hazard, the 11-year-old ran to Brazilian Willian for an autograph, and then found himself playing keepy-uppy with one of his idols.

Describing the exchange, Daniel's mother Bernie said: "Daniel asks for an autograph... I'm busy getting the camera ready so I can't hear properly, but I just see Willian turn his back on Daniel and I think 'oh no!!'

"But he actually said, 'Do you want to play?' And that's how it happened really. I hit record then.

"I think we are still in shock! I don't think its sunk in with him," she added.

Chelsea are in fourth place in the Premier League after a 2-2 draw with Burnley saw them squander the opportunity to overtake Tottenham.
