Bilbao supporters lose their way

More than 400 Athletic Bilbao fans heading to the Europa League final arrived in the wrong country after mixing up Budapest with the host city Bucharest.

They weren't the only ones getting mixed up with the similar-sounding names, though, with the official stadium announcer making the same mistake.

He greeted the crowd with: "Good evening, Budapest, and welcome to the Europa League final", before he was promptly booed by both sets of fans.
