NZ finish 3rd at U-17 Women’s World Cup (football)

A very good result in the U17 Women’s Football World Cup, with New Zealand beating Canada to finish 3rd. They only lost once, to Spain in the semi-final.

    I must confess to finding this rather yawn-making.

    They also lost to Ghana 2-0 In pool play. Ghana was then beaten by the runner up Mexico in the quarter finals on penalties.

    I only followed from a distance but anytime a NZ sports team over achieves like this is not a yawn. Grace Wisnewski scored twice, once in first minute then again in 12th in front of her parents who had flown in after they made the semis.
