Former All White Steve Sumner has had a grandstand named after him at a ceremony at English Park in Christchurch today.
Sumner led the All Whites in their first appearance at the Football World Cup in 1982.
He spoke at the ceremony today in St Albans, which was attended by friends and family, including members of the 1982 team.
Sumner was one of just two players to score a goal for New Zealand at the 1982 World Cup and still has the record for most goals in an international match for New Zealand, after scoring six against Fiji in 1982.
The 61-year-old is battling prostate cancer.
