FIFA World Cup 2018 Qualifiers End in Goalless Draw in Wellington

FIFA World Cup qualifier

“It is good to know,” remarked Warren Steel, head of New Zealand’s popular car spa Shyn4U, “that Paper Tiger Peru has failed to beat Oceania Champion New Zealand, even though they had all the opportunities right from the beginning in the first leg of the intercontinental World Cup playoff this week (November, 2017) in Wellington”. “In fact, the Los Incas (Los Incas Peru Football team) failed to score a coveted away goal despite outplaying New Zealand in the opening match of their two-legged World Cup qualifier,” added football fan Warren. The teams, nevertheless, would head to Lima next week for the return leg with the South Americans trying to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1982, while Kiwis aiming to return for the first time since 2010.

Speaking at the inauguration of a seminar highlighted with the launching of a new car detailing product made and marketed by sister concern Auto Shine Car Care Products Ltd, Warren sidetracked to football which has captivated the Kiwis since long, while referring to the merits and demerits of both the teams.

Peru, ranking 10th in the world to New Zealand’s 122, were the better team but lacked the cutting edge command in the absence of goal-scoring captain Paolo Guerrero, who has been suspended over an “abnormal result” from a drugs test.

New Zealand worked tirelessly in defense and they rode their luck at times, but grew in confidence as the game progressed and will be happy to head into the second leg in Lima shortly on even terms.

The Kiwis were also dealt a cold blow before kick-off when striker Chris Wood was ruled out of the starting line-up with a hamstring injury.

They showed early nerves, almost conceding a goal in the sixth minute with some indecisive defending that forced keeper Stefan Marinovic to race back and palm the ball off the line. The visitors, none the less, dominated in midfield, allowing Andre  Carillo to pepper the New Zealand box with crosses searching in vain a finish from striker Jefferson Farfan.

It was 20 minutes before the first meaningful New Zealand attack, when Ryan Thomas won a corner only to send the ball over the head of a leaping Tommy Smith. There were chances at either end for New Zealand’s Kosta Barbarouses and Christian Cueva of Peru but both shot wide without bothering the keeper. Peru continued to build patiently, although Farfan appeared to struggle as the target man in Guerrero’s absence. Of course, he failed to capitalize as more New Zealand slips led to a goalmouth scramble 10 minutes before the break.

Returning back to his favorite professional topic that dealt in detailing cars as often as possible, Warren warned the gathering that curtailing money on this account may jeopardize the asset value of their cars in a simple penny- wise, pound- foolish manner.

However, he stressed on regular washing and cleaning of cars by using Auto Shine brand Car Wash 107 which would effectively remove all traces of dirt and dust, bird droppings, tree sap, acid rain, road salt and a horde of paint destroying elements, yet keep the paint protective top coating of the car intact. This will result in a gleaming outer shell only after a simple wash.

He also emphasized on polishing cars with Auto Shine brand Car Polishes to stop formation of rust, at the same time ensuring extra high gloss, coupled with extra high protection from the elements. These products have been specially formulated to provide swirl free and highly reflective surface finish, while removing mild oxidation and minor scratches. No wonder most Kiwis prefer Auto Shine car polishes for keeping their vehicles in showroom condition all the while.

While World Cup football is played in most countries, world class car grooming products are best found in the land of the kiwis, the foremost producer being Auto Shine Car Care Products Ltd. Located in Mayfair, Hastings, products are available all over the island country and can be purchased online 7 x 24 x 365.
