Football Ferns

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:21 pm on 26 September 2013

This morning the Football Ferns beat China 4 Nil to win the Valais Cup in Switzerland to show just how far women's soccer has come in New Zealand. The win is providing some much needed tonic for sports fans despondent about the loss of that other cup today. The win in Switzerland is the first bit of silverware for the Football Fern's Trophy Cabinet since winning the Asian Cup in 1975.
