Awesome game to watch. Good result for NZ. A bit unexpected but we are 2nd in the group on goals scored. Hilarious own goal. NZ FOR THE WIN!!

Good result, yes. But why was Rojas left on the bench? Is he injured, out of form or (maybe the clue was in the coach's comments) were they only out for a draw...

Chris Milicich, New Zealand coach: “The key was not to lose, so it was important to start with this draw. It gives us confidence. I think we defended quite well and our goalkeeper was amazing."
