All Whites great Sumner awarded top honour

All Whites great Steve Sumner shared centre stage with one of his all-time idols as he was awarded world football's highest honour at a glittering pre-World Cup gathering in South Africa.

Sumner - who captained New Zealand at the 1982 World Cup finals - received world governing body Fifa's Order of Merit award alongside Dutch superstar Johan Cruyff and former South African president Thabo Mbeki.
