New Zealand are through to the World Cup! The goalkeeper of the family and I joined her team at a team mates place up the valley for a pot luck dinner before watching the match together.
Bahrain gave some opposition and displayed their talent for acting in the first half. However, Rory Fallon’s rocketing header just before half time and Mark Paston’s save of the questionable penalty were stellar! Despite the temptation to fall back and defend which seemed likely early in the second half, the All Whites licked it up a notch in the last 20 minutes with several attacking raids and a few shots on goal.
I confidently predict there will be no beer left in New Zealand by morning!
