All change for All Whites
There are changes in midfield and goal ahead of the All Whites World Cup qualifier against New Caledonia at North Harbour Stadium on Wednesday night.
With the pressure of qualifying off after the sides 3-1 victory over New Caledonia in Noumea at the weekend All Whites coach Ricky Herbert wants to try out some new options.
Goalkeeper Mark Paston, and midfielders Tim Brown and Chris James have all been called back into the side.
While, Glen Moss, Jeremy Brockie and Allan Pearce have been relegated to the bench.
Herbet said, with the pressure off, he didn't want to waste the chance of trying out a few different options because this will probably be the last time the team is together until March.
Skipper Ryan Nelsen captains the side again, with Herbert saying he felt an obligation to the New Zealand public to start the Blackburn star.
The pressure might be off but the fate of next years World Cup playoff hangs in the balance with less than 500-ticket being pre-sold for the game.
New Zealand Football CEO Michael Glading believes the lack of interest could affect the NZFC's chances of hosting the World Cup knockouts in 2009.
But Glading is still hopeful of attracting up to 10-thousand fans at Wednesday's game with the belief that people prefer to buy tickets at the gate.
