Reading fans ready Aussie tribute to Federici

Reading fans are feverishly preparing thousands of Australian flags as they plan to honour Socceroo goalkeeper Adam Federici at Wednesday night's (Thursday AEST) home game against Birmingham City.

Federici has received an outpouring of support since his costly blunder saw the Royals beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on the weekend.

A Twitter campaign - #FlagsForFeds – was almost immediately started with fans planning to bring Aussie flags or wear pink, the same colour as his goalkeeping jersey, to this week’s home match.
