    If NZ Soccer (or whatever it's called) don't take advantage of this, of all the exposure etc., well they never will get a better opportunity.

    It's sounds ridiculous, but I'm sort of disappointed that we couldn't get a goal and go through, it would of capped off the fairy tale even more. Still though, you have to be proud of them though and what they have achieved. If only a team like France should have the bottle that the NZ team has shown

    Italy match was just incredible..... So good to watch.
    Still laughing at Italians being out though.... What about the manage running off without handshake.... What a loser.... So hilarious seeing the Italians cry and refusing to shake hands.... No wonder no one likes them.

    England aren't really hated.... They are loved all over Asia.... I'm pretty sure alot of ppl in India, China etc will be supporting England.

Though I suppose it's easy to spot these things in hindsite, still a tremendous blooper on the part of the FA.

    Oh, and in other news my Bull**** alarm just exploded at the rumour of Winston Reid being chased by Arsenal.

    Doubt there will be very high demand for a New Zealand coach, notwithstanding their achievements. There aren't many American coaches employed in professional clubs despite the national team having Yank coaches since 1995 and very decent results in the last decade.
