Deaf and blind, but a friend helped this Brazilian to live every minute of the World Cup

Carlos and Hélio will be together again tonight for their unique Brazil v Mexico experience.

THE BELOW VIDEO shows what it means to be a diehard football fan.

The focus of the short clip is Carlos. He can’t see or hear, but according to his friend Hélio Surdos’ YouTube upload, he has been praying that he could somehow follow the World Cup with the rest of the nation.

Surdos, as you’ll see crafted a board to represent the football pitch and as the 90 minutes unfolded, he would move Carlos’ hands around the field to indicate what was happening.

Here is Surdos’ video of himself and Carlos enjoying Brazil’s 3 – 1 win over Croatia. Don’t blame us if you’re a little emotional by the end.
