Fulltime: What a great win for the young Kiwi side. Just too good for the European side. New Zealand played better football and created a tin more chances and top the group with a game to play against the impressive Uruguay. 

90+2mins - Just seconds left now as NZ push for another.

88mins - Sarpreet Singh almost makes it 3-0. Norway pushing for a goal but NZ breakout through Singh, he dribbles a good 60 yards, before popping a curled shot over the keeper but also over the bar.

83mins - GOAL NEW ZEALAND - John Kitolano (OG): That'll seal it for NZ. Cacace, who has been sublime, darts down the left, beating two defenders, he finds Just, who drives in a low cross from just inside the box for Waine, but Kitolano gets in front, however his touch deflects the ball into the net. NZ 2-0.

77mins - New Zealand still pushing for a second goal. Norway look dangerous on the breakout, but quite frankly this NZ side is simply better in quality.

70mins - GOAL NEW ZEALAND - Giannni Stensness: Absolute screamer! Wow, wow, wow, wow. What a strike from the defencive midfielder. Good possession for NZ through Bell and Singh on the edge of the box....Bell lays a pass back to Stensness who is a good 35 yards out - he hits it first time and it smashes into the roof of the net less than a second later. What a goal from the young man. NZ on their way to the knockout stages if the score remains the same. NZ 1-0.

66mins - NZ playing some really nice one-touch football through Bell, Singh and Just but they can't quite find that defence unlocking pass. But they are dominating at the moment.

60mins - Free-kick for NZ just outsdie the box. Sarpreet Singh with a weaving run is eventually brought down by a defender. 

55mins - Much more open second-half. Norway getting success through long-balls to Haland but NZ are scrambling well at the back. 

51mins - Chance for NZ - best of the game. Bell is fouled on the edge of the box....Just takes it quickly and Waine cracks a shot to Lund's left but he parries the ball away. Great save that.

47mins - Good play from Bell, Just and Elliot has NZ inside the area but Norway clear. the breakout and Haland is in space again but Elliot makes a great tackle as the Norwegian striker was about to pull the trigger insdie the box.

46mins - Back underway in Poland. NZ win an early free kick inside their own half.

Half time: All square at the half. NZ with the better of possession but Norway created a couple good chances. Cacace and Sarpreet Singh were both excellent for the young All Whites.

42mins - Chance for Norway is squandered. Haland breaks the offside line and is away down the left but he decides to pass instead of shoot and it's a poor effport as Svendsen steps over himself and NZ clear.

41mins - That's a poor effort as he blasts it well over the bar.

40mins - McCowatt fouled on the edge of the box - great set-piece chance here for NZ. Singh the likely taker.

31mins - New Zealand looking great throug a half-hour, Singh creating a few chances and Cacace has looked a class above. They are keeping the ball well and living in Norway's half at the moment.

24mins - Great play from Cacace. The Nix fullback skins three defenders, skips onto his right foot and drills a low shot to the right of the GK, but Lund saves well. Corner comes to nothing.

22mins - Chance for Singh but the Phoenix forward only earns a corner as his deflected shot drifts just wide. Norway defend the corner well and they clear.

11mins - NZ controlling possession but a couple of edgy moments for the Jr All Whites keeper Woud. Taking a bit too long to clear the ball - as Erling Haland closes him down but the ball deflects over for a goal kick. Then it happens a gain a few seconds later.
