Nice result for NZ to snatch a point. A win v Turkey will be hard but maybe a point could be enough if the other game is a draw!

settle down fellas. New Zealand still must perform against Turkey, and have a favourable restult between Costa Rica and BFA. I could quite easily see Turkey putting 4 or 5 goals past our boys, if CRC beat BFA, it's all over.

"In the first half we got battered, there is no other word for it. We were not in the game at all. The opposition took the game to us from the very start and we found it difficult to cope with their pace and skill and their movement. At the end of the day with all the drama we will probably settle for a point.
