New Zealand’s All Whites have been left heartbroken and furious following a 1-nil loss to Costa Rica in their World Cup play-off
Coach Danny Hay said the officiating was at times “atrocious” and he said the referee wasn’t up to the level required.
It’s the third qualifying campaign in a row New Zealand have fallen at the final hurdle after losing play-offs to Mexico and Peru in the past two World Cup cycles.
Meanwhile England has been booed off the pitch after suffering its worst home defeat in nearly 100 years and going four games in a row without a victory.
Hungary sent four goals past the home side in the UEFA Nations League.
Remarkably, Hungary are the first team to score four goals in an away match against England since they themselves won 6-3 at Wembley in 1953.
“It was a night to forget but we‘ve got to take it on the chin. We’ve got to move forward,” says England captain Harry Kane.

Cristiano Ronaldo has played his last Man Utd game
Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave the club with immediate effect.
The two parties mutually agreed to go their separate ways, in the wake of the 37-year-old’s recent interview with Piers Morgan.
In that interview, Ronaldo criticised the manager for not playing him as often and the club for ‘not evolving’ since returning for his second stint.
Ronaldo has not appeared for the Red Devils since picking up an illness in early November.
