It hasn’t been since 1982 that Peru’s national team has played in the World Cup. Now that the moment is here, football fans have become super fans. And they’re going over-the-top in showcasing their excitement.

The euphoria of loyal fans has led to retail madness as sales of football jerseys and wide-screen TV's have hit record levels. The big game also has some Peruvians - who have never even left the country – spending thousands of dollars to travel to Russia to see the 2018 World Cup.

Correspondent Dan Collyns reports from Lima on Peru’s football fever.
