FIFA World Cup 2010: New Zealand 23 Man Squad

New Zealand have named their 23 man squad which is to fly to South Africa to compete in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The New Zealand coach, Ricki Herbert, has named a 23 man squad which features mainly antipodean-based players who ply their trade in New Zealand or Australia, though there are seats on the plane for the USA based Jeremy Christie (Tampa Bay) as well as several British based players, and defender Winston Reid who plays in Denmark.

New Zealand will have a tough time progressing from their group, Group F, as it contains holding champs Italy as well as Paraguay and Slovakia.
