First time

New Zealand surprised and showed strength against the favorite Norway, for the debut of the 2023 World Cup. In search of the first victory in the history of the World Cups, the hosts had the support of the fans at home to put pressure on the Norwegian team.

The home team bet on aerial balls and launches for striker Wilkinson, the best on the pitch, but failed to create a great chance to score. On the other hand, the Norwegians didn’t hit a shot on target, but they had the best chance of the first half: finishing off Maanum.
