New Zealand hold hosts France for remarkable result

The New Zealand come away with a well deserver 0-0 draw against hosts France at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup France 2018.

The New Zealand U-20 women have pulled off one of the most notable results in their country’s history after holding France, tournament hosts and one of the favourites to lift the trophy, to a nil-all draw at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup this morning. In an absorbing encounter played at a high intensity throughout, France dominated possession as expected in front of their boisterous fans but New Zealand had a clear game plan and executed it to the letter to keep their hopes of progressing past the group stages alive.

New Zealand have now given themselves a chance to progress with a win over Ghana but Turnbull is keeping his feet planted firmly on the ground.
