the only capped New Zealand footballer i can think of is Shane Smeltz....and he played for us (mansfield) before going on to the mighty AFC Wimbledon....

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.

no he doesn't - he plays for Hibs now (when he's not on the Physio's table)
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.
last time we face brazil it was only 2-0. i'm expecting a similiar result quite frankly
The bra boys are probably playing NZ to try to gauge the oceania style of football.

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.
