Ex Stags Player Scores in World Cup

Ex Stags Player Scores in World Cup
Ok, so he may have only made five appearances in a Stags shirt, but at least we can lay claim to fame that an Ex-Stags player has now scored in the 2010 World Cup.

Shane Smeltz made just one start in a Mansfield Town shirt in early 2005, but his goal against Italy in the group game of the World Cup, sent shockwaves around the footballing world.

New Zealand, only there supposingly to make the numbers up, then held to a creditble draw against the current World Cup holders.

Ok, so it looked like Shane's goal was offside, but we won't talk that, well done lad!
