Win tickets to All Whites
Star quality: Win tickets to see Ryan Nelsen and the All Whites in action at
North Harbour Stadium.
Ricki Herbert has named a settled
20-man squad for the first two
matches in the third stage of FIFA
World Cup qualifying.
One of the games will be played
at North Harbour Stadium in
Albany on September 11 against
the Solomon Islands and Sub-
urban Newspapers, publishers of
the Papakura Courier, has 10
double passes to give away.
Winners will also be able to
attend the private Captain's Run
the day before the match to see
the All Whites train and have a
chance to get a signature of their
favourite All White.
Simply email your name and
address to linda.Mcleod@nzfoot
ball.co.nz and you'll go into the
draw to win. Remember to include
your daytime contact details and
type All Whites World Cup Qual-
ifiers Contest in the subject line.
The All Whites open their cam-
paign in Noumea on September 7
with the chance of exacting a
modicum of revenge against a
New Caledonia side that upset
New Zealand in the semifinals of
June's Oceania Football Confeder-
ation (OFC) Nations Cup.
The North Harbour match four
days later will be the first home
qualifier of the 2014 campaign.
Herbert is calling on his full
range of overseas professionals for
both games and his squad
includes new Queen's Park
Rangers signing Ryan Nelsen,
West Ham's Winston Reid and
Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder
Dan Keat, who all missed OFC
Nations Cup through injury.
Captain Nelsen is on course to
play his 50th A' international in
front of a home crowd in Christ-
church on October 16.
The core of the squad is
retained from the Nations Cup
with teenager Tim Payne holding
on to a spot after an impressive
Olympic Games campaign in the
holding midfield role.
Herbert says missing out on the
OFC Cup has steeled the team's
resolve to qualify for Brazil 2014.
There are no easy games in
international football -- we've
proved that in recent years and
also had a timely reminder of it in
Honiara,'' he says.
