Mexico vs. New Zealand – (8.30pm)
The Mexican players have done their country a dis-service over the past year, and that’s no exaggeration. They aren’t here because they’ve done anything, but more because the USA and Costa Rica have made light work of everything in their path for them. After struggling to win most of their games, two injury time goals from the USA against Panama sent Mexico through in the final position. They’ll now play a two legged affair with New Zealand. Lucky in a year where Mexico are so poor that there playoff is against the OCEANA side, because they will qualify. Going to New Zealand presents the chance of a shock, so the home side really does need to take advantage of being at home here, and there’s not much to say about this game, they should.
