Great Win for Whites

The All Whites, the world’s 78th-ranked team, have beaten the world’s 15th-ranked team, Serbia 1 in a World Cup warm-up match in Klagenfurt, Austria. New Zealand football coach Ricki Herbert has said that his team’s victory over Serbia could be considered their greatest ever win. “For us it’s a fantastic result, it’s the best we’ve ever had in the history of the game, to beat a team at that level,” The New Zealand Herald quoted Herbert as saying. The win would provide a huge moral boost ahead of the team’s first appearance at a World Cup in 28 years, even with a 31 loss to Slovenia the following week.
