Portugal superfans headed to Ukraine

Two Portugese men have been on the road for 37 days, hoping to see their team win the Euro 2012 in Kiev.

    Thousands of Portuguese football fans are heading to Ukraine for the big game on Wednesday.

    Among them are two friends for whom dedication to their team is more than just a hobby. Jorge and Carlos have only missed one game in the last 12 years.

    This year, they have been on the road for 37 days, covering 3600km, with the dream of seeing their team wim the Euro 2012 final in the Ukraine.
