Vanuatu venue approved for World Cup qualifier

11:13 am on 6 November 2007

The All Whites will play their football world cup qualifier against Vanuatu in Port Vila afterall.

The New Zealand team was due to open their world cup campaign in Vanuatu last month but the match was postponed after the sport's governing body FIFA decided the stadium wasn't up to international standard.

But football's world governing body has now given Vanuatu the green light to host the All Whites after improvements to the venue.

The match will go ahead on Saturday week.
