New Zealand Men’s 17’s FIFA World Cup Campaign 2011

Stephen Carmichael v USA

New Zealand football players continue to show their ability on the world stage. At the FIFA U17’s World Cup hosted by Mexico in June 2011 the NZ players qualified for the 2nd round for the second consecutive 17’s World Cup.

A 4-1 win in the opening game against Uzbekistan was followed up by a narrow 1-0 defeat to the Czech’s. In the final group match the NZ team faced USA and both sides gained the point they required to go through to the next round. View the NZ v USA clips

Several of the players involved with the training and eventual World Cup squad have chosen US Scholarships Ltd to provide them with opportunities in the US college system.

US college coaches fully aware of the standard here in NZ are recruiting our talented men and women.
