Keith "Buzzer" Gordon Mackay (born 8 December 1956 in Wellington, New Zealand) was a football (soccer) player who represented New Zealand internationally, appearing in all 3 matches of New Zealand's first FIFA World Cup finals appearance. [1]

Mackay made his full All Whites debut in a 4-0 win over Mexico on 20 August 1980.[2] He represented the All Whites for all three matches at the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Spain,[3] where they lost to Scotland, USSR and Brazil.[1] Mackay ended his international playing career having played 48 times for New Zealand. 36 of these appearances were A-international caps.[4] He scored a solitary goal in A-internationals against Fiji during the 'Road to Spain' 1982 World Cup qualifying campaign.[5] His final full New Zealand cap was as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Fiji on 18 October 1984. Keith ended his All White career later that year against England B in Nottingham. [2] He is currently the Coach of the Junior Boys' team at Alfriston College in Manurewa, South Auckland.
