Mexico passed through them. They used long through balls, practically jamming it down the All Whites' throats. They dominated on set pieces. They defended with almost profound ease. They tripled their opponents' possession. And barring one the most unbelievable comebacks in the history of sports, Mexico just qualified for the 2014 Brazil World Cup. But this isn't about the Mexican national team.
It's about New Zealand. Because it's rare when to watch an underdog that you know is undermanned, outgunned, that you know is probably about to catch an ass-whooping, and still be left shocked by how bad, how incompetent they are. But...that team was bad.
