Taranaki Daily News - - Sport -

New Zealand’s in­volve­ment in the Fi­fia un­der-17 World Cup is over af­ter a 3-1 loss to African cham­pi­ons Mali. Hav­ing drawn 1-1 with Turkey and lost 4-2 to Paraguay, the Danny Hay­coached side needed a com­pre­hen­sive win in New Delhi to progress. Mali scored early and dou­bled their ad­van­tage in the 51st minute be­fore Charles Spragg gave New Zealand some late hope but they con­ceded again in the 82nd minute to put the game be­yond reach.
