Portuguese football fans in the FC Porto Fan Club in Stockwell

'Football is a passion for us,' says Jose Antonio Costa, the president of the Porto Fan Club which meets in Stockwell. 'Many people come for friendship - you know, in a foreign country, you feel more comfortable with your own people.'

Eric Santos, the owner of Santos's cafe near the club, says, 'People come for my wife's bacalhau- salted cod, made with potatoes and onions. Delicious!' There is quite a big Portuguese-speaking community here, from Portugal, Brazil and Madeira, but they do not always stick together. 'Everyone looks after their own interests.' The Portuguese and the Madeirans, in particular, are very separate groups in London, because Madeira wants independence from Portugal.
