    As Burgey said the class of opposition was very different, but NZ were everything Australia weren't the other night - tight, disciplined, well-organised. And not completely pony.

    Geez Smeltz made up for his missed header with that ball in for the goal. And great stuff from Reid, stopped a near-certain goal at one end and then scored the equaliser at the other.

    Second, thanks to our ancestor's foresight in naming our country 'New Zealand'.

    Yeah, Nelsen's our best player by miles. It's obvious to see, just how much harder it is for the strikers to get around him than everyone else. Reads the game well too.

    Well he's got the right initials to be a kiwi football hero, so I suppose it was inevitable.

    It's "Aotearoa" really, so we'll call us first.

    Yup a class above, particularly so given he was effectively the sole central defender with the two wingers/wing back formation played. Easy to see why Blackburn rate him so highly.

    Yup. If only 3-0 Ivory Coast with Ronaldo sent off in the 1st minute for being alive, and it would be beyond perfect.
