New Zealand 1-0 Serbia – Goals & Highlights Video

Shane Smeltz shocked Serbia as his goal led New Zealand to an unlikely friendly win.

The All Whites, ranked 63 places below their opponents, have been labelled by many as one of the weakest teams at this summer’s World Cup in South Africa.

But they made a mockery of that tag as Smeltz, who spent a portion of his career playing non-league football in England, struck the only goal of the game after 22 minutes to down their more fancied opponents in Klagenfurt, Austria.

The result does not augur well for Serbia, who face Australia – winners over their neighbours last week – in Group D in South Africa, as well as Germany and Ghana.

New Zealand are in Group F with Italy, Paraguay and Slovakia.
