The yearly FIFA games have now become a precedent in following certain teams or players in World Football. Maybe you're from England and have taken 1860 Munich to Champions League glory and now own an 1860 Munich shirt, or maybe you now have a favourite player due to the game.

However, these two Mexican fans took it to a whole new level, making a 5,500 Mile trip to watch Adebayo Akinfenwa live for Wycombe Wanderers.

Akinfenwa, has amassed a cult following due to his insane ratings on FIFA, normally being rated as the strongest player on FIFA, the "Beast" is synonymous with FIFA.

Frenzel and Francisco Gamez were treated to a warm welcome upon their arrival, receiving a tour of the ground while also meeting the players before the game, including Akinfenwa.

"We decided to plan this trip because my brother plays FIFA and we saw the team Wycombe...We then see Akinfenwa, he then saw that he is a beast."

"We Googled him and saw his followers on Instagram and we thought he was amazing...We then started to follow the team as we became fans, so that is why we decided to come to the game today [Saturday]."

The brothers had been planning this trip for Months, believing that Akinfenwa will be retired soon and made it their mission to see the Beast live one time before he hangs up his boots.

"We started to plan this trip to Wycombe about three months ago, but my brother wanted to see Wycombe play from about a year ago."

"But with money and other stuff, we couldn't do it but after a while, my brother went a bit crazy and he said, 'We need to see Akinfenwa!' This is because he could retire soon, and we wanted to see him play live."

The pair were treated to a meal with the team after the game, during which they gifted the squad a mini mariachi hat for good luck.
