Australia United

For Tony Wilson, the 2006 World Cup was a story of football, and so much more. When he wasn’t watching Tim Cahill turn defeat into victory against Japan, he was sampling the German culinary delight, calves’ feet. When he wasn’t cheering Harry Kewell’s qualification-sealing goal against Croatia, he was smuggling a bag of Cherry Ripes into the Australian camp for Kewell to tuck into on his day off. And when he wasn’t weeping into his Socceroos scarf after his nation’s heartbreaking exit to Italy, Wilson was dancing the samba to the Brazilian beat or joining the end of a Ghanaian conga. The World Cup in Germany was a wonderful time for all Australians and, in Australia United, avid football fan Wilson captures everything that makes it the best tournament on the planet. Great football, great atmosphere, great times.
