I am afraid the general opinion underestimated the Kiwis. They showed they deserved to classify to the World Cup, and I wish Paraguay gave them more of a fight.

Great World Cup for NZ.Three points and we finished above Italy on the table.But i also think NZ played the most boring football at this World cup.This game was a torture to watch.
