New Zealand interim head coach Neil Emblen has named an 18-man squad for their international friendly with Uzbekistan in September.
Three players who missed the clash with South Africa in May are back in the setup for the Tashkent meeting on September 8.
"In the two matches we've played this year against Japan and South Africa we've had a number of excellent performances from individuals involved across both games," Emblen said on NZ Football's official website.
"The squad of players we're taking to Uzbekistan rewards the players who have impressed this year against top quality opposition."
Before taking on Uzbekistan, the All Whites will be in camp in Doha, Qatar as they prepare for life under incoming head coach Anthony Hudson.
