Football: NZ vs Philippines, review by Jills Angus Burney

From First Up, 5:46 am on 26 July 2023

Time to talk football, and it was a dramatic match between New Zealand and the Philippines in Wellington last night. The Football Ferns lost 1-nil to the Philippines - who are making their first appearance in a women's world cup. A week ago football super-fan Jills Angus Burney saw the Football Ferns make history with their win over Norway, and she was also in Wellington last night. Jills was a history maker herself as the first school girl in Manawatu to play football back in 1975, when women still weren't allowed to play. She reviews last night's match with Nathan Rarere.
