    NZ to play Brazil

    NZ will play Brazil in Geneva as a warm-up to the World Cup.
    10-nil to Brazil anyone?

    I think we'd be happy with 10-0!

    Considering we've got more players playing in the upper European leagues, it'll be ok. If we end up fielding the majority of the side with NZ Knights players, then it could get ugly.

    Think you'll go ok, maybe hold them to 3 or 4. As it's being held in Geneva I'd imagine your foreign based players will be playing.

    I seriously would doubt it to go 10 - 0, i'd say 3 or 4 to 0 as well because it's just a friendly and brazil will most likely go easy once they are infront.

    HK got beat 7-1 and UAE 7-0 so i doubt it will be 10 nil even if NZ don't have all their European players.

    Brazil will use it as a chance to give the other squad members a go (ie guys like Diego, or Junniho if picked) I would imagine.

    Although I would find it funny if Ronaldinho did play and did suffer a pretty serious injury by a New Zealand defender who wants to be remembered for forcing The World's Greatest Player off on the medicab. More so the backlash in Brazil that would happen for playing a meaningless game.
