The South American nation returned to the FIFA World Cup after 36 years and its fans did it with a big bang

During the summer, walking in the streets of Moscow, Samara and other Russian cities meant seeing a lot of football fans.

But in the middle of all these fanatics, there were those with shirts in white and red who were simply too happy to be in the FIFA World Cup.

Those supporters were Peruvian fans.

The Southamerican supporters just won the FIFA Fan Award for filling the Russian World Cup with lots of color and music.

The Peru fans beat Sebastian Carrera from the match Coquimbo Unido-Deportes Puerto Montt in the 2017 Primera B de Chile.

They also beat Japanese and Senegalese fans in the World Cup.
