PNG Kapuls loses in penalty shootout

Papua New Guinea Kapuls put their bodies on the line and fought to the last battle before losing to New Zealand 4-2 in the penalty shootouts.

The second half grew more tense with the rowdy crowd begging Kapuls to score at least a goal but New Zealand defended well until nil all for fulltime.

Then, came the extra time as both sides look tired and weary but continue the fight but again went off scoreless on both halves of the game.

The moment of truth than pops in when the two teams chose their best to go for the shootout.

After attempts PNG fell short of two goals after Raymong Gunemba missed fired a shot off the goal mouth and Koriak Upaiga's kick was saved by the New Zealand goal keeper Stefan Marinovic.
