Player profile: Born and raised on Auckland's North Shore, Winston Reid began his footballing career with Takapuna AFC at the tender age of four before moving to Denmark at the age of ten.

Reid then signed a youth contract with SUB Sonderborg before being snapped up by Danish Super League side FC Midtjylland in 2005.

Viewed by many as one of Denmark's most prolific rising talents, Reid was awarded Danish citizenship in 2006 and played for the national side at the U-19, U-20 and U-21 level before deciding in March this year that his international playing future belonged with the All Whites.

Although he is a talent defender, thought to be on the radar of several of Europe's top football clubs, All Whites coach Ricki Herbert has come under-fire for the 21-year-olds selection because he has never actually seen him play.
