Video: Liverpool Surprise 10-Year-Old Fan With Disneyland Tickets

A young Liverpool fan was given the surprise of a lifetime recently, with the Premier League giants rewarding his bravery with tickets for their match with Huddersfield followed by a trip to Disneyland Paris.

Sam was born 11 weeks early and doctors immediately noticed they couldn’t see the right side of his brain, due to severe bleeding.
