Juniors begin with draw

12:26 pm on 31 July 2011

The Junior All Whites have begun their under-20 football World Cup campaign with a 1-all draw against Cameroon in Colombia but will be ruing missing a golden opportunity to steal the win.

The New Zealand striker Sean Lovemore received a perfect cross unmarked in front of goal with just the goalie to beat but sent his volley skying over the net.

The goal had looked a certainty until Lovemore managed to miss one of the easiest chances to snare a world cup goal he'll ever get.

The Junior All Whites next face Uruguay on Wednesday.
