VIDEO: Shane Smeltz kicked in head, All Whites V New Caledonia
The All Whites may have beaten New Caledonia 2-1 in Dunedin tonight but it came at a price.
Striker Shane Smetz was kicked in the head in the match, late in the piece.
Blood gushed from a wound to the head, what appeared to be the result of studs to the face or head area.
