New Zealand is Out! and I’m not talking Kiwifruit
New Zealand’s ‘All Whites’ final game in the World Cup was played on Thursday June 24 against Paraguay with a 0-0 draw! (darn you smart people who placed bets)
Despite the first-round elimination at the World Cup, most, if not all of us kiwis are proud just to have known our team got through to qualify for the World Cup at all.

New Zealand coach Ricki Herbert put it well when he said: “There is no good way to leave the World Cup,” before the final. “But leaving together with Italy and (2006 finalist) France can’t be too bad.”
Yeah… But now NZ is out, I like many more am just going to go back to watching highlights replayed on nightline. (that or play Fallout)
