Nelsen in QPR quandary if New Zealand progress
New Zealand will have to seek permission from Queen's Park Rangers to secure captain Ryan Nelsen's services if the Oly-Whites defeat Brazil. Nelsen is due to leave with QPR for a 10-day training camp in Germany on Saturday.
But, if the Samba Boys are defeated and the All Whites finish above Belarus and Egypt in pool play, they would play a quarter-final game on Sunday.
"The preparation he's getting here is really good for Ryan at this stage of his career''.
