The All Whites believe they are on track to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, despite the near impossible route they will have to take. Advertisement"Whoever we face in November and touch wood we get there - it's the fifth best team in South America," said coach Anthony Hudson. We believe we can get something out of it and we want to be back here [in Russia] in a year's time." It's an overused word, but this All Whites team is starting to build the kind of camaderie and cohesion that was so apparent in the 2007- 2010 era. This All Whites team gave up far too many scoring opportunities at the Confederations Cup, looking particularly vulnerable when opponents attacked down the flanks, and a similar output in November will be terminal to their chances.

Hello, hello. Either people seemingly close to Oracle Team USA members are looking to put up New Zealand flags around Bermuda if Peter Burling and the Kiwis seal the deal in the America's Cup final tomorrow - or perhaps they've been collecting them for some reason? Whatever the motive for this Instagram post from the account of Oracle Team USA grinder Louis Sinclair, it was very suddenly removed shortly after being published. The picture reveals a man tipping several New Zealand national flags out on the floor. Earlier in the Cup regatta, there had been news reports of New Zealand flags being taken down from different areas of Bermuda after being placed there by Kiwi supporters.
