While The All Whites are a power house in Oceania they are minnows so to speak in the rest of the football world, despite the heavy odds stacked against them they did manage to qualify for the 1982 World Cup which was held in Spain.
It was in Spain where Wynton Rufer a New Zealand forward shot to fame, despite his team being over powered he managed to stand out above the rest of his teammates.
From the outset New Zealand knew that in Spain life was going to be tough for them as they were paired in Group 6 with Scotland, The Soviet Union (now Russia) and one of the pre-tournament favourites Brazil who contained stars such as Zico and Socrates.
They lost all three of their Group games going down 5-2 to Scotland in their opening game which was followed by a 3-0 defeat to the Soviet Union and in their final group match they lost 4-0 to Brazil.
