    All Black kit one of the great ones of world sport imho.

    And as I understand it they still haven't sullied it with mass sponsor logos on the front. FMD, the Aussie Cricket, Union and League teams look horrible. Never know if I live in a country called XXXX (I wish!); vodafone; Qantas or 3 Mobile.

    Horrendous. Cheapens the shirt massively imo.

    The only sponsors we've ever had on the jersey is a Steinlager logo on the right breast in the late 1980s-mid 1990s, and the jersey maker's logo on the left breast which, as Burgey said, in this modern commercially-driven sporting world, is awesome.

    Aye, same thing's happened to me once playing basketball. Looked around furiously to see who had randomly decided to trip me up and there was nobody there.

    More to the point, COME ON YOU KIWIS.

    Incredible recovery in that case. And cramp and diving seem to both require a little flick of the heels and throwing the head back. If it was cramp then I stand corrected, to me it looked like the defender may have come within touching distance of his heel and he decided to go down like a shot Yak.

    Agree with others though who said - C'MON NZ!

    Actually quite excited about this game, this kind of match-up is a big part of what makes the early stages of a world Cup so interesting. Hopefully both teams will decide that they have to grab their one chance to shine with both hands and make an attractive game of it.

    Still predicting Slovakia to come out on top, I'm afraid, they can be a good side on their day.

    Keeping with the theme; go New Zealand. Hope for an exciting contest with the Kiwi's scraping through.

    Soooo excited/nervous/scared at the moment. This is definitely our best chance to pick up a point, and am desperately hoping we don't clam up. Need to have a good start, otherwise it could all turn to custard.

    Vicelich ahead of Christie is an interesting one. I think he's a better player (Christie has the first touch of an elephant), but it leaves us with the same problem in our setup. We're playing a 3-4-3, but in reality it's going to be something like 5-2-3. The two wingers will be playing deep, and with Elliott and Vicelich both playing a defensive midfielder role, there's going to be a massive gap between our defence and strikers. That's going to leave us with the lump-forward-for-Fallon-to-nod-on-to-Smeltz option as our only way to break out of defence.

    Have been considering going down to Queen's Wharf to watch it on the big screen there, but it's probably going to be raining, windy and freezing ****ing cold. Also, all the useless swines I asked at work weren't keen. So will probably just site at home and watch.

    Anyway: Slovakia, prepare for a thrashing!

    Can't wait, win, lose or draw it will be worth it just to see NZ in the World Cup.

    Wish New Zealand would do the Haka before kick off would be so cool.
