Some Spanish fans are determined to support their World Cup team in South Africa at any cost.

Fans queued at Madrid's Barajas Airport for last minute flights. Two chartered planes are scheduled to take hundreds of fans to Johannesburg. Each fan had to pay more than 26-hundred euros for a ticket.

Spanish soccer fan Manuel Alonso said, "We are going to Johannesburg to watch the World Cup Final. I consider it important that we are going to win. I am also going to meet my son who is there already."

Spanish soccer fan Fernando said, "It was my wife who encouraged me to go - she and my daughter said, 'you are going, it will make us happy.' They dropped me off here and now I am waiting to watch Spain win the World Cup title."
