New Zealand – Away – 2010

In 2010 New Zealand qualified for only their second Word Cup following a Play-Off win over Bahrain. Incredibly New Zealand remain the only team not to lose a match at the World Cup finals after they exited at the group stage drawing with Italy, Slovakia and Paraguay. This means Fiji have the remarkable feat of being the only side to beat New Zealand in their World Cup journey.

There was in fact only one team who went unbeaten for their World Cup 2010 campaign, and that was the British Virgin Islands who drew both their games in the first round of qualifying against The Bahamas, but went out on away goals. Both legs were actually played in the Bahamas, so it was bad luck that the designated ‘home’ match was higher scoring. To be fair The Bahamas got hammered 13-0 by Jamaica in the next round.
