AUSTRALIA beat New Zealand 1-0 in Auckland yesterday in the first leg of a World Cup Oceania zone play-off. Graham Arnold of the Belgian club, FC Liege, scored the only goal in the 58th minute, running through New Zealand's offside trap to take a pass from Carl Veart and shoot home. The second leg is in Melbourne on Sunday, with the winners playing Canada for the right to meet a South American side for a place in the 1994 finals in the United States.
