It's a great week for footballers springing festive surprises, now it's the turn of Manchester United's Paul Pogba.
Joao is a 17-year-old volunteer at the Manchester United Foundation and coaches children as part of the Street Reds programme.
He's worked so hard this year that the Manchester United Foundation decided to reward him, with a gift from his idol.
Joao believed he was taking part in filming for the Foundation and received a huge surprise when his football hero Paul Pogba arrived bearing early Christmas gifts of an Xbox and FIFA 17 game.
The French star spent time giving tips and having a kick about with the young volunteer before signing shirts for Joao and his father.
Watch the moment Joao was surprised below:

England Rugby star Danny Cipriani's trial for drink-driving will continue after a judge dismissed a bid to have the case thrown out.
The 28-year-old Sale Sharks player crashed his black Mercedes into a taxi in June last year.
He is accused of being so drunk his eyes were "glazed", he slurred his words and could not stand straight after the crash.
Jurors heard that a breathalyser test showed Cipriani had 67 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath - nearly twice the drink-drive limit in England and Wales of 35 micrograms.
The defence said there was not "sufficient" evidence the breathalyser test in the police station was working properly but Senior District Judge Howard Riddle ruled that Cipriani has a case to answer.
