NZ All Whites secure grand final spot in OFC

The only goal from All Whites skipper Chris Wood against New Caledonia sees New Zealand through for the grand final spot in the OFC Nations Cup.

New Caledonians gave All whites a tough battle until a penalty in the 48th minute right after time broke the deadlock.

Woods fired a banana kick just outside the 18 yards over the NCL  defence that slipped off the goal keepers hands and into the net behind.

New Zealand now secures the first spot for the finals as they await the winner of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Island encounter tonight at the Sir John Guise Stadium in Port Moresby.
