NZ (All Whites) VS Japan

First of all, I want to congratulate Neil on taking the New Zealand national team for the first time.

I saw very young but exciting bunch of players with a footballing style where it was a joy to watch.

Couple of early mistakes saw them go down 0-4 against a very good Japanese side mind you.

But with Neil's tactical adjustment, we saw much more of an even contest and in the 2nd half we saw New Zealand being the better side and creating more chances.

With what I saw in the 2nd half, the players moving off the ball, taking care of each pass and touch, getting behind their defense, trying to play football, I saw a new era in football New Zealand which could be something very promising and exciting.

Perhaps with Rojas being fit to play, it may have ended 3-4 or 4-4 you never know.

Either way, I was very happy to catch up with my former team mates in Tokyo and wish football New Zealand all the best in the years to come.
