The Ballymena native was given tickets to Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 clash against Ukraine by his father the day before the match and his exuberant reaction to the gift has been steadily racking up the shares on social media.

This was an amazing present for a few reasons. Firstly, Zak and his father got to witness the Green and White Army score a historic 2-0 victory over Ukraine, which marked their first win at a major tournament in 34 years.

Secondly, his enthusiasm and passion for his beloved Northern Ireland team didn't go unnoticed.

The footage traveled to France where it reached Kyle Lafferty. The Northern Ireland striker was so blown away with Zak's reaction that he arranged a Facetime call from squad members to Zak to wish him a happy birthday.

Good luck finding a gift as good as this next year.
