Wellington (AFP) – For New Zealand’s All Whites, the Confederations Cup represents a rare chance for football to emerge from the huge shadow cast by rugby union’s All Blacks and test themselves against top opposition.

Unlike the top nations at the eight-team tournament in Russia, football is not the most sporting popular code in New Zealand, where rugby dominates to a degree unmatched anywhere else.

After the belter in the West bring on the El Classico in Gosford

Football in the Capital at related • 0 views
It wasn't pretty football in the West but it was a belter of a game. Perth v Wellington. And arguably two of my least favourite football teams are playing much better football than years gone by.

But it's not Swansea is it.

Great to see my most hated Coach ex-Ger Iain Ferguson using brain and craft to play full-back Scott Neville in a switch for my man of the match Billy Mehmet.

Shane Smeltz stole the headlines as Perth put a strangely negative Melbourne Heart to the sword.

Perth aren't pretty for the neutral and with Liam Miller off his game it was dire stuff. A strange second "goal" that clearly wasn't killed the game all hats off to Smeltz for celebrating early - did he influence the Perth-based linesman who gave a goal.

La clasificación deja a los brasileños a la espera de su rival en la final, que saldrá este jueves del partido de vuelta entre el Millonarios colombiano y el Tigre argentino, que en la ida quedó 0-0.

El Sao Paulo dominó el partido netamente, condujo el juego en todo momento y dispuso de buenas opciones en las botas de Jadson y Luis Fabiano, sobre todo gracias a las jugadas de Lucas Moura, pero una actuación providencial del portero Cristopher Toselli impidió que se inaugurase el marcador.

Grace & Fists Down Under

The Offside at related • 0 views

The preceding "brawl" (exceedingly liberal use of the term) is from a friendly in Australia between Wellington and Newcastle. The foul which sparked the ruckus was the result of a free ball via the touch of a statue, and I don't quite know who the hell is in the wrong. Both are some margin from graceful, and it's just not pretty.
