Video: Young Benfica fan 'gifted' with Porto shirt

Posted by Chris Wright

Knowing full well she is already a staunch Benfica fan despite her tender years and that she'd asked for a Benfica replica shirt for Christmas, little Catarina's parents -- though we think we're fairly safe in assuming this was primarily Dad's idea -- decided to prank their young daughter by giving her a shirt of her beloved Portuguese club's bitterest rivals for Christmas and capturing her reaction on video.

As expected, poor Catarina is utterly, utterly dismayed at her "gift" and refuses to even finish opening the parcel, before finally bursting into tears when her mother finishes unwrapping the offending Porto shirt -- which our young protagonist refuses to go anywhere near.

Fortunately, to save her from a full-on Yuletide breakdown, Catarina's parents come clean in the nick of time, admit they were only joking and eventually hand over their daughter's real present.
