Three Switzerland fans used a tractor to drive the 1,800 kilometers to their team's World Cup match against Serbia in Kaliningrad.

It took them 14 days from Switzerland and they arrived on Thursday, just in time for Friday's second Group E game.

"It is unbelievable what you get to see," Beat Studer, who owns the tractor, told Swiss newspaper Blick.

Their exploits follow those of Germany fan Huberth Wirth, who took 30 days to cover the 2,400 kilometers from southern Germany to Moscow on his tractor.
