Stories from the Locker Room podcast: Ivan Vicelich

"The Godfather" of New Zealand football played his part in one of the greatest moments in this country's sporting history, when the All Whites qualified for the World Cup in 2009.

New Zealand's 1-0 against Bahrain, enough to send Ivan Vicelich and his side to a first World Cup in 27 years.

But it wasn't all smooth sailing on the journey there.

Sacked coaches, retirements, leading players injured and several crushing defeats, preceded that night in Wellington. 

Speaking to Newshub's Andrew Gourdie, Vicelich takes us behind the scenes into the mentality of that side, what motivated them and ultimately what led to an undefeated World Cup campaign in South Africa.
