In 1982 NZ qualified for the FIFA World Cup for the first time ever. Today, 27 years later; some of the sons of those 1982 players were fielded against Bahrain to determine the group qualifying. Bahrain only needed a draw; but NZ had to win the match. NZ won 1-0 after our keeper saved a Bahrain direct penalty from being scored. (No sheep were injured before or during the match! However: I can not say with any authority; if any sheep were invited to the after match celebrations in the backcountry )
You don't have to comment; but if you do; please excuse my total lack of forum niceness....... I'm going Fishing
Congrats..... my team had Chris Killen on loan last year, he was absolutely pants for us and we sent him back to Celtic. Sorry, but he just was! Can we all expect to see a few hubs about the world cup from you now?
Yeah Chris Killen had a very average game and was subbed in the second half. Don't be sorry mate; He's not the flashest player for sure and missed a couple of good opportunities. But the key thing with the kiwis is that half the team aren't even professional and they didn't have much support from our sports bodies. Maybe, on the hub thing. Ireland's got France to sort out in this round.
I remember still ,dragging my kids outta bed ,woffing down toast n weetbix to get to soccer games on a frosty Sat mornin ,lol...Youngest loved playin Goalie at the junior level , he was quite focused and seemed to just love the contact and mud n blood lol.
