From a NEW ZEALAND/Oceania point of view I think if Nz had qualified we wouldn't have been beaten by as big a margin but we didn't and Tahiti made it so good luck to them,this is the point if you don't win to qualify you might think you could be/do better than those that do it's just to bad you'll learn that qualifying games are part of the competition as well. Musetto you have often spoken well about the fairness of who qualifys for World Cups and I agree with you that it's not the Euro's or the South American Cup so everyone needs to understand in any league or competition so one will finsh last.

"Everything has turned out perfect today; we've won the game, we haven't picked up any injuries, we haven't been shown any cards, we've kept a clean sheet and we're through to the last 16. To be among the best 16 teams in the world is a very important achievement for Venezuelan football," Cesar Farias, Venezuela coach.
