    Maybe so, but we need to start somewhere and i dont see how starting against a powerhouse will do anything for the Nations reputation..

    New Zealand? Thailand? Indonesia? Myanmar? Malaysia? Papua New Guinea? All quite good sides in the area that should probably pwn us but at least give us a decent idea of where we stand in international football.

    Of course we shouldn't play Brazil for 15-20 years yet. But there's a difference between "powerhouses", "mediocre sides slightly above our level" and "rank amateurs from an island population 64,500 whose national sport is gridiron"

    Looking foward to it. Here's to hoping i can pull out a few good games to give myself a chance of selection.

    Need to start at the very bottom. In terms of region's reputation we're down at a mighty 0. Playing and beating American Samoa will raise our profile marginally in the international scene.

    Seeing as how our national sport is Cricket it would be a good idea to start at the very bottom rather than an average side who would beat us quite convincingly. We need to show to our doubters and the people supporting us that we deserved international recognition so we should try and win as many as we can for a start.

    Indeed. Archie Thompson-esque, maybe.
