In some of the most outrageous World Cup news to surface, Serbia fan Sasa Jovic has recently set out on a 10,000-mile trek to South Africa. Donning the flag of his country, Jovic took off from Serbia with only his backpack and a world map as he looks to make it to South Africa in time to see Serbia’s World Cup opener against Ghana in Pretoria on June 13.
“I’ve decided to take to take a road less travelled and I plan to get to South Africa on foot, while I will also hitch-hike and take public transport when possible,” Jovic said. “I will travel via Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia and Botswana.
“I hope the national team will give me plenty to cheer about when I get there.”
