New Zealand back at football world cup after 30 year absence

5:20 am on 15 November 2009

Almost 30 years after New Zealand first made it to a football world cup, the All Whites have qualified again beating Bahrain one nil in Wellington last night.

In front of a crowd of over 35,000, the biggest ever to attend a football match in this country and watched by many of the 1982 New Zealand side who played at world cup in Spain 27 years ago, the current side created it's own slice of history.
