Key Statistics and Trends: Vanuatu vs New Zealand

  • Vanuatu lost both of their matches in March.
  • New Zealand did not win any matches last year.

Vanuatu – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"Yellow-Green" has never qualified for the World Cup and was excluded from the last qualification round. In recent Nations Cups, they have been eliminated in the group stage.

New Zealand – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"All White", since Australia's move to the Asian Football Confederation, has had little competition in the region. Despite qualifying for the 2010 World Cup, their motivation for regional matches has waned, and their European-based players, mainly in the UK, are often reluctant to make the long journey. They defeated the Solomon Islands 3-0 in their second match.
