New Zealanders are greatly excited about their team’s qualification for the soccer World Cup due to start in South Africa next month.

This is the first time in 28 years they have been represented at the finals.  New Zealand qualified after beating Bahrain in November last year, ensuring their trip to South Africa this year.

The ‘All Whites’, as they are known, are busy training ahead of Ricki Herbert’s announcement of the final squad of 23.

Unfortunately the Kiwis are placed in difficult group and will have to face Italy, Paraquay and Slovakia, but nevertheless, hopes are high for reaching the later stages of the competition.  Their first match will be against Slovakia.

Like other teams travelling to South Africa, New Zealand have a series of warm-up matches, including Serbia today.  They play Denmark on June 1.

The team coach, players and fans are very optimistic of their chances, in spite of New Zealand being underdogs in the competition, a fact that is compounded by bookmakers odds.

The ‘All Whites’ have been quoted at 1500/1 to win the competition and at 66/1 to win Group F.

No doubt there will be many Kiwis wishing to place a bet, not only on the final outcome, but also on individual games.

Bets can be placed with a bookmaker or on the many online gambling sites.  All of sports mad New Zealand will be keeping their fingers crossed for a large payout in the hope that their team can perform a miracle and beat the odds.
