nil all at half time which flattered NZ big time.

2nd half as expected 4-ZIP,

good game with nz being shown up as lacking pace out wide.

NZ looked good running around in circles until losing the ball,but  they couldn't get the ball enough to feed the strikers who looked reasonably lively.

Record crowd of over 12k for game.

Our goalkeeper must attack the ball.Seems to just stand back and then try to block the shot

Tend to agree after watching highlights. She was seen backpedaling a lot only to be left flat footed and slow to react to some soft shots. Needs to narrow the angle a bit and attack the ball.  We also lack speed with some of our defenders who were run rings around at times. Still, good learning curve and one only gets better by playing the best.
