New Zealand can still qualify for FIFA World Cup: Coach

Wellington, Nov 19 (IANS): New Zealand football coach Ricki Herbert said Tuesday that his side's World Cup playoff match against Mexico was not over, despite having lost the first leg 1-5.

New Zealand will qualify for the World Cup if it wins 4-0 in Wednesday's return leg here, reports Xinhua.

"Who knows what tomorrow night might bring?. The doom and gloom some people have wanted to paint is not with us. We'll be up for this and we'll certainly be giving it the best we can," said Herbert.

Captain Tommy Smith believes the team will work miracles.

"We have to believe we can win this. I believe we've got the attributes to do that," he said.
