New Zealand national team coach Ricki Herbert has lauded goalkeeper Glen Moss.

After Moss' performance in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Iraq at the Confederations Cup, Herbert believes the 26-year old has a good future ahead of him.

"Glen's a quality keeper, he was there when we needed him," Herbert said.

"He's not going to be part of the World Cup play-offs (in October/November) due to suspension unfortunately.

"I think he's got the potential to go further. He's just signed a new contract with his club (Melbourne Victory) but I wouldn't be surprised if people come knocking."
