    The Jamaican's first goal was a flukey cross that was too flukier than that Brazilian cross that beat David Seaman in the World Cup. Also Marco Roja was brought down heavily by the keeper and that should have been an penalty kick but the referee had the blinkers on even though everyone else in the stadium could see it clear enough. The score line flatters the Jamaicans. It should have been 3-2 or even 3-1 to New Zealand on hindsight.

    Alas, football is never fair.

    I for one was very happy with the All Whites. They are an even stronger side than the 2010 World Cup team with the youngsters skills on show. They should get to the WCQ playoffs easily without severe injuries. Depending on their opposition in the playoffs, I think they should ranked up into the top 40-60 in the world rankings.

    Auckland City pair added to All Whites squad

    Uncapped Auckland City duo Ian Hogg and Adam McGeorge have been added to the All Whites squad for impending World Cup qualifiers in the Solomon Islands and internationals against Honduras and El Salvador, with Ryan Nelsen’s injury-enforced omission now confirmed.


    May 18, 2012
    AUCKLAND – Uncapped Auckland City duo Ian Hogg and Adam McGeorge have been added to the All Whites squad for impending World Cup qualifiers in the Solomon Islands and internationals against Honduras and El Salvador, with Ryan Nelsen’s injury-enforced omission now confirmed.
    McGeorge, who captained the New Zealand U-23 team to Olympic qualification in March, and Hogg, who is on course to appear in a second straight Olympic games, bring New Zealand’s OFC Nations Cup squad to a full quota of 23.
    However, the All Whites will be without Ryan Nelsen for the start of their World Cup qualifying campaign after medical staff at Tottenham confirmed an ankle injury picked up towards the end of the season will see Nelsen out for four weeks.
    “I met with the doctors at Spurs while I was in London recently and am fully across the situation with Ryan and where he is at physically,” New Zealand coach Ricki Herbert said.
    “The injury he’s has been carrying needs rest and we’ve not going to do the player or our team any favours by throwing him into the demanding schedule we’ve got coming up and risking greater long-term damage.
    “If he gets the rest and treatment he needs now then we increase our chances of having him for the next stage of qualifying and the Olympic Games.”
    “Two more promising players now have an opportunity to push their case and both Adam and Ian have got a great chance to help New Zealand take the next step towards Brazil and put themselves in our long-term plans.”
    Due to club commitments, Dan Keat (LA Galaxy), Chris Killen (Chongqing) and Winston Reid (West Ham) have not been released for the Honduras and El Salvador games, which fall outside of the FIFA international window, with Reid involved in Sunday morning’s promotion playoff with West Ham.
    Tony Lochhead (honeymoon) and Rory Fallon (pursuing coaching badges) have been excused for the USA leg while US-based goalkeeper Jake Gleeson is on standby for the Nations Cup but joins the team in the USA.
    The team depart on Sunday for Texas where they play El Salvador on May 24 (NZT) and Honduras on May 27 (NZT), before travelling on to Honiara via Brisbane for the OFC Nations Cup.
    There they face Fiji (June 2), Papua New Guinea (June 4) and Solomon Islands (June 6) in Group B with the top two teams from each of the two pools qualifying for the next stage of World Cup qualifying in September, October and March. The winner of June’s OFC Nations Cup also qualifies for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil.

    The was one player in our U23 team that isn't even playing in this friendly. A lot of countries have players do stupid things in games you don't take a shot at a whole country for it. Getting back to the actual game its El Salvador 1-1 New Zealand at halftime
