NZ is hosting the Football World Cup in soccer.

We have been told - do not call people by any name they may not like. Like Poms. We have been told people are sensitive to names.

What about what people call us? Did I ever agree to be called a kiwi? No, I did not.

I am a New Zealander - I am not a little furry bird or a little furry fruit.

So a bit of respect to our country, please - when you come here, do not call us kiwis.

Just kidding - I am sick and tired of people who can't take a joke. That probably means Canadians.

New Zealand is hosting the world cup? Have I missed a joke? I thought it was Brazil in 2014 and not yet decided for 2018?

I am sorry, but I understood the next Rugby World Cup is to be held in New Zealand.

My money is on the All Blacks to win! Go Kiwis (unless the Bokke can do something miraculous)

Nope. You are correct.

2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup bids
en.wikipedia.org...

and 2014 is in Brasil.
en.wikipedia.org...

New Zealand and World Cup? Is that the joke?

Oh man, you must be referring to this thread:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Lighten up. BTW I'm South African, before you get your knickers in a knot..... As for the world cup, well NZ should take it, but as I have said previously they seem to choke like SA's 1 day cricket team.


So who knows what team will win. What I do know is that we won the last 1!!
Go "AmaBokke Bokke"!!

No, it is soccer.

This is a huge deal - NZ is hosting it - I love how everyone ignores this - NOT!

So, a bit of respect to NZ please.

I repeat, we have been told blah blah blah - so we are New Zealanders YAY YAY YAY!

And we don't care what you call us - unlike the others who care - we are being taught pc hahahaha!

What are you going on about?

As stated above Brazil is holding the next World Cup and New Zealand are not even bidding for the 2018 or 2022 World Cup. However Austraila are.

I fear you may be mental.

Ahh dude, you're like my boet, support the kiwis eh? I do admit that they are the best team, and remarkably from a nation of 4 million people - that is amazing!

We decided to humor him 1 Saturday morning and went to a bar to watch a trinations game between our countries (yes, Sat morning in a bar - it was rough, but after 2 beers - all was good). We all wore NZ outfits, as he had lived there for a while and bought a load of it.

Anyway, in the dying moments NZ scored a try to beat us.
Holy hell we had to hightail it out there, as there were some crazy angry "boer" boys in that bar!
(Randburg of all places!)

I think the previous poster is right, with all due respect, sounds like you are losing it!
If not, have any links to prove this NZ soccer world cup. Rugby yes, but Soccer

New Zealand are not holding the world cup. The OP is trying to make a point about names.
