What would be the perfect birthday gift for a 17 year old guy who loves soccer? (Non-soccer gift ideas would also be appreciated. A book gift that he wouldn't hate would be the most amazing suggestion imaginable.)

My nephew is turning 17. I like to give my nieces and nephews books - it's kind of my thing. My he's 17 now and I can no longer skate by on my dated knowledge of young adult literature. I don't like to give money or gift cards in these situations. I like to give people things they want but wouldn't/can't buy for themselves.
He lives far from me and I don't see him often but I know he loves soccer, especial Real Madrid and the Greek national team. I'm willing to forgo books unless you have an amazing suggestion.
If you or someone you know loves soccer, what would you/they like to receive as a birthday gift? Alternatively, general gift suggestions for a 17 year old guy?
Suggestions in all price ranges would be helpful.
