    Ryan Nelson plays for Blackburn. Simon Elliot plays for Fulham.

    Alot of NZ players are in the mid to lower leagues in England. Our only other player in a decent team is Ivan Vicelich and he's been playing for Roda JC for around 3 or 4 seasons now.

    Should be an interesting result and team picked by Brazil.

    Much as I like Australia's big shot teams (rugby, cricket, etc) losing, any Aussie teams that are considered strong underdogs facing up to some team that I don't support will probably get my backing.

    And former Bradford and Walsall goal keeper Mark Paston sits on the bench at St Johnstone in Scottish Division One (IIRC?) who AFAIK is first choice in goal.

    Won't do them much good though, considering they have 2 Asian opponents in their group!

    Just thought I'd dig this up, considering that the game is tomorrow.

    Final prediction: with Nelsen and Elliott both out injured, I'd be satisfied with anything less than 4-0. We've actually played quite well on our tour of Europe - lost 2-0 to Hungary but had several good chances to score; beat Georgia 3-1 and drew with Estonia 1-1. They aren't exactly superpowers, but it's a lot better than I was expecting.
