NZ Women FIFA World Cup Campaign 2011

Katie Bowen NZ FIFA World Cup 2011

New Zealand National Women’s team showed once again that they have made huge steps on the World stage. NZ were drawn in a group with high quality footballing nations including eventual winners Japan. They took every game to the wire losing by a single goal to both Japan and England. ┬áThe NZ Ferns showed that their players are a force to be reckoned with at the highest level.

The highlight of the campaign for NZ was a highly respectable 2-2 draw against Mexico. In an exciting finish that had the NZ team 2-0 down with only minutes to play they showed the resolve and talent to grab a point from the Mexicans.
