Gallery: Japan and Brazil at Changi Airport
They came in throngs to the airport, football memorabilia at the ready and anxiously peering out for a glimpse of their favourite superstars.
Avid football fans who turned up at Changi Airport this weekend were not disappointed, as first Japan and then Brazil's football teams touched down in Singapore.
The Samurai Blue were first out on Saturday evening, looking dapper in black suits after a Korean Airlines flight from Seoul.
They were followed the next morning by the Selecao, in eye-catching yellow team polos after a chartered Singapore Airlines flight from Beijing.
Japan will take on Brazil on Tuesday evening at the Singapore Sports Hub.
