A Chilean football fan who wanted to cheer his national team on at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil [1] missed his team's first game with Australia because he mixed up the cities Curitiba and Cuiabá.

During an interview with a reporter in Curitiba, the distracted fan said he was happy to be in Brazil, “a beautiful country”. The journalist told him that the match against Australia was scheduled in Cuiabá… 1,700 kilometers away from Curitiba.

Twitter users reacted almost immediately:

Chilean fan went to Curitiba instead of Cuiabá.

Chilean football fan who mixed up Cuiabá and Curitiba, 1.700 km away from his national team debut on the World Cup says he was joking the reporter.

Anyway, my life is way much better than the guy who got mixed up with Cuiabá and Curitiba, LOL! I dropped dead… LOL!!!
