Was an inspiring game played by a NZ team who wouldve gone with low expectations of their supporters! Uzbekistan, while not a power house in football, still looked good, just lacked the finish. out played in most parts as the stats show, very nice to see a kiwi team going well!

I think it was the worst match of Uzbekistan BUT I hope in next matches Uzbekitan will crash other teams
