If you can work out the faces

Stamenic, Bright, Taylor, Simpkin, van Hattum

Wilson, Old, Lobo, Strong, Garbett, Naicker.

Would have been: Taylor / Naicker, Simpkin, Strong (order my vary) / Wilson, Bright, Stamenic, Lobo / Old / Garbett, van Hattum

When I mentioned that we played Mexico in a friendly today at lunch at a vegetarian club I run for students at Canterbury University, Mexican student Adrian (whose family have immigrated here) said that his cousin (son of his mother's sister) Gabriel Martinez played.

Small world.

Adrian is from Guadalajara and his cousin Gabriel is in the reserve/youth side at Chivas.

New Phoenix recruit Ulises Davila is also from Guadalajara and started his career at Chivas.

Some local connections in the Solomons side with some players based in NZ:

Raphael Lea'i,  Wellington Phoenix Youth

Leon Kofana, Wellington Phoenix Youth

Charles Mani, Glenfield Rovers

Coach Stanley Waita is a former Waikato FC player in our Premiership.

That'll be a baptism of fire for them in the same group as Italy, Mexico and Paraguay.....

Small world indeed. Considering popn of Mexico is around 130 Million, you would get long odds on that happening!

A proper 1st cousin too. In the Latino world a 'cousin' can often be a 3rd cuzzie or greater distant relative.

Know very little Mexico geography - but I'm pretty sure the Guadalajara region features heavily in Netflix's "Narcos Mexico".

Big loss to Argentina this morning. 

Argentina very good. We started poorly. A few changes from previous game, some injuries apparently. Change in formation as well.

Some positives but Argentina in a different class

Thanks for the update ClubOranje, can you provide a starting 11 and are we playing a 3 4 3 or some other formation?. Who are the most likely starting 11?.

Not sure the lineup for this game. Don't even know formation really, but 1 up top.

Think it was 8-1. NZ Football might have a report later.

Van Hattrick scored for us.

I'd guess for Angola we'll line up similar to Mexico game, maybe 1 or 2 changes.

Thanks for the update. At the end of the day it’s only a warm game and I doubt Angola will be at that level, but I can’t say the same when it comes to Brazil!.

Expect the locals to also get behind, their fellow Portuguese speaking Angolan 'little brothers'.

Actually a 7-1 loss.

Didn't realise the 2 warm up games against Mexico & Argentina were in Buenos Aires, not Brazil.

See they got in the obligatory visit to Boca Juniors 'biscuit tin' stadium.

Argentina FA going with 8-1 and listing 8 scorers.

Mother of one player posting on FB that it would be nice if the team trained together more.

Just watched the game. Argentina were good, but not 7 goals better than us.

1st half goals were all soft/defendable.

Giveaway after a backpass, fail to defend free kick, poor defence of corner, soft penalty - hung a leg slightly, striker made sure he fell over it.

Second half had two good goals Argentina made, other two they took advantage of misplaced control or passes in the back third.

Basically need to be more focused at set pieces and not give cheap possession away.
