The youngster was brought to tears when gifted a Sam Kerr Matildas jersey for her birthday in August. 

The video posted by Angelique Bennett was shared to Sam Kerr's facebook page.

"What a wonderful inspiration you are Sam Kerr..both on and off the pitch. This is the reaction you received in our house this morning for a little girls 9 year old birthday! Priceless," the post wrote.

Kerr went on to share the video and wished Willow a happy birthday. 

 "Wow amazing. Happy birthday."

"Hopefully I can meet you and sign it one day soon."

Well, that day finally came but Willow didn't know she would be meeting her hero and thought she was just doing an interview at Fox Sports.

In a video, which will surely have you reaching for the tissues, the two finally met. 

Willow started to cry and when Kerr asked why she said: "I'm so happy".
