Boxall, Brockie win Oceania Nations Cup

Premiership

The All Whites were held to a 0-0 draw by Papa New Guinea in the final, with another Matsatsantsa star, Michael Boxall, starting the game.

Brockie was introduced in the 55th minute of the match but could not find a goal in the 120 minutes.

The match went to penalties, with Brockie missing the fourth penalty for his side. Papa New Guinea missed two of their own spot-kicks though and the Kiwis triumphed 4-3.

New Zealand now qualify for the 2017 FIFA Confederation Cup in Russia, while the top six countries in the Nations Cup also advance to the next round of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
