    More than five hundred Dutch football fans are enjoying their team's fine start to the World Cup from a campsite.

    Five thousand football fans from the Netherlands have made their way to Brazil to support their team in the World Cup but for these five hundred, hotels were simply not an option.

    They have brought their 'Orange Dive' water celebrations to South America and even call themselves the 'crazy fans'.
