Congratulations Maya Hahn and the New Zealand U-17 women’s team

All at Western Suburbs extend their congratulations to our own Maya Hahn and the New Zealand U-17 women’s team for bringing home the bronze medal from the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Uruguay.

The Young Football Ferns beat Finland and hosts Uruguay on the way to being the first NZ Women's team to qualify for the knockout stages of a World Cup.

Maya scored a penalty in the shootout to beat Japan to reach the semi-final where they lost to eventual winners Spain.

The bronze medal was secured in the 2-1 win over Canada where they again made history with Grace Wisnewski scoring the fastest ever U17 Women's World Cup goal in just 15 seconds.
