Georgina, who lives in Fenton, picked up the iPod hoping she would be able track down its owner, and yesterday her grandmother, Barbara, spotted Tayla's story in The Sentinel.
She said: "I thought someone would steal it if I didn't pick it up.
"I tried to get an announcement read out on the radio after the match but it didn't happen.
"My grandma spotted the story about Tayla in the paper.
"I was really happy. It felt great to give it back to her."
Tayla, of Fenton, wanted to use the device to film the Stoke City players coming out of the tunnel for her dad Pete.
But she discovered she had dropped it before the match.
Pete, an avid Stoke City fan, is currently serving in Helmand Province with the Queen's Royal Lancers and is due to return in May.
