Oehringen in Germany is the town that is hosting the Socceroos and the whole place is full of Australian flags and Aussies.
It is fair to say that the whole of Europe is soccer mad. Tickets are sold by scalpers for up to 20 times the printed value. People drive thousands of kilometers to see a particular game. When we drove through Oehringen the stadium was just being prepared for a returning to town ceremony of the Socceroos.
