Unlikely.  Very Unlikely.
 
Let's start with the concept of Peta being selected ahead of Keane or Basalaj who are in the current training squad, let alone Gleeson and Marinovic.


Agree,

I found  it interesting what has been posted on Transfermarkt site.

In all honesty thats a piss poor team. Do you reckon any of these players will make it once you throw the overseas players into the mix with one or two Auckland City lads?? Just asking for opinions.

It is piss poor. There are so many players that would be picked but I understand wont being going to Fiji based on media reports (Rojas, Kosta, Woods etc) not to mention names like Keat, Boxall, Reid, Smith, McGlinchy, Gleeson..... We actually have a quality full strength Olympic side when you look at the amount of them that are All Whites so should go well.. and people say Ricki doesn't pick young talent.....

Personally Id like to see Smeltz as one of the open-age players in the squad.

I would have McGlinchey in there and Winston Reid (maybe even Boxhall) and use this squad as a stepping stone to WC qualifiers

Did anyone on here go to the U23 game in Palmerston North today?

If so, what was the final score? Can't find anything on the web.

Agree, I'd take Reid and McGlinchey for sure, plus a forward - either Smeltz or Killen.

I would take Nelsen McGlinchey and Smeltz. If Nelsen can't go then replace him with Reid.

Think there's not much point in having Nelsen involved in something like this at his age and at this stage of his career. Reid is the future of NZ football, and this for me is a good opportunity to have him and Smith playing together in the centre of defence at a decent level but without too much pressure.

I can see your point, but I can see the advantage of having someone like that in a leadership role, and to help organise and calm things on the field.

Oh, I understand the impact that Nelsen's sheer presence has on the team (not just on the field but off it too), but at some near point in the future it won't be there anymore, so guess I see this as an opportunity to start preparing for life without Nelsen in the team.

I'd take Nelsen. As coach. Sack Ricki.

Yep, I certainly see your point. I don't necessarily think there is a wrong answer here - we might just have to agree to disagree.

I think we take Nelsen. Yes he isn't going to be there forever, but that's exactly why we should make the most of him. Is Dan Keat under-23?
