New Zealand make history in Poland 2019 bow

New Zealand produced the nation’s biggest win in FIFA U-20 World Cup history with a 5-0 rout of Honduras to open Group C play at the FIFA U-20 World Cup Poland 2019.

Darwin Diego inadvertently steered the ball into his own net just eight minutes into the match, and that unfortunate moment seemed to deflate Carlos Tabora’s side. After that, New Zealand took full control of the match as Ben Waine had a brace to his name midway through the first half.

The second half continued in much a similar vein to the first. New Zealand maintained their dominance with Sarpreet Singh and Matt Conroy adding a fourth and fifth goal to ensure the Kiwis made history to commence their Poland 2019 campaign.

Next up in Group C (27 May)

Honduras – Uruguay (18:00 local time)
Norway – New Zealand (20:30 local time)
