Prince Harry shoots winning goal as New Zealand tour ends

AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) -- Britain's Prince Harry has finished a weeklong New Zealand tour in which he visited remote islands and engaged with indigenous Maori by paddling a traditional canoe and delivering a greeting in the native language.

Harry showed off his athletic skills Saturday in Auckland when he scored the winning goal in a friendly 5-a-side soccer game. The game was designed to highlight the upcoming FIFA World Cup for under 20-year-old players which New Zealand hosts later this month.

Harry's last official engagement was visiting a sports training center. He is scheduled to fly back to the United Kingdom Saturday evening.

Harry told reporters he was thrilled he got to travel to every corner of the country and meet so many New Zealanders during a trip he described as "epic fun."
