Continuing our top ten series, tvnz.co.nz selects the top ten All Whites during the period 1982 to 2010

Steve Sumner

A true captain courageous. Pulled on the All Whites strip for over twelve years and was famous for his lionhearted displays. A tough tackling midfielder with an eye for a goal, it was a richly deserved honour when he scored against Scotland in the World Cup, becoming the first player ever from the Oceania region to notch a goal at FIFA's grandest tournament.

105 caps/22 goals

Wynton Rufer

Broke on to the world stage as a precocious 17-year-old, scoring the goal against China in the playoff that took the All Whites to the 1982 World Cup in Spain. He made his name at Werder Bremen in Germany, twice winning the Bundesliga and scoring a double to beat Diego Maradona's Napoli in the UEFA Cup. Admired by the Germans with his ability as a penalty killer, and still of the most recognisable New Zealanders in mainland Europe.

39 caps/12 goals

Steve Woodin

Possibly the best natural finisher to come from New Zealand shores. Had an incredible knack of finding the corner of the net with one swing of his silky left foot. Coach John Adshead famously recalled that one of his proudest moments was seeing Woodin against Brazil, where he lost nothing in terms of skills. Woodin scored New Zealand's second goal in the 5-2 loss against Scotland in Spain

13 goals

Ryan Nelsen

Despite not always being available for the All Whites while he forged a professional career in the USA and England, the Blackburn captain has made an invaluable contribution to the New Zealand cause. He scored the goal to beat Australia and take the side into the 2005 Confederations Cup, and was the cornerstone of the qualifying campaign against Bahrain. His mere presence and experience has also been invaluable in the development of the next generation of All Whites.

38 caps/6 goals

Brian Turner

The current All Whites assistant coach was one of the most skilful players ever to be produced on these shores. In the twilight of his career during the epic qualification campaign for Spain, he notched several key goals and was an important member of the squad playing in all but three matches. In all Turner managed 102 appearances for the All Whites and found the net on 21 occasions.

102 caps/21 occasions

Michael McGarry

The Christchurch-born attacking midfielder was often New Zealand's best hope for goals and attacking verve in the mid-1980's and early 1990's. An incredibly skilful player, he made 87 international appearances between 1986 and 1997 and scored 12 goals.

87 caps/12 goals

Ivan Vicelich

Having made his debut in 1995, it is a true credit to his professionalism and durability that the attacking midfielder turned defender is still playing at international level. A veteran of three confederations cup campaigns (1999, 2003 and 2009) he will still be one of the first names on the team sheet in South Africa.

71 matches/6 goals

Grant Turner

Though he could sometimes find himself offside with officials and administrators, there was no questioning Turner's all-out commitment to the New Zealand cause. An all-action aggressive midfielder with a real eye for a goal, the man from Gisbourne was the epitome of blood, sweat and tears. He is best remembered for scoring an incredible headed goal against Australia at the SCG - the moment that broke the back of the Socceroo's campaign.

71 matches/14 goals

Ricki Herbert

The young defender was a pillar during the 1982 World Cup qualifying journey and went on to captain his country in the unsuccessful 1990 campaign. Probably retired too early (and has since admitted as such) but has go on to carve out a very successful coaching career, bringing respect and credibility back to the All Whites after some truly dark days in the early 2000's.

84 matches

Duncan Cole

Along with Keith 'Buzzer' Mackay, this no-nonsense midfielder was one of the cornerstones of John Adshead's squad, playing in all 15 qualifying matches on the road to Spain and in the games against Scotland, Russia and Brazil. Cole wore the silver fern on a total of 92 occasions over a decade.

92 matches

Vaughan Coveny

A true professional, Coveny led the line for his country for over a decade. He played 71 games from 1992 until 2006, scoring a record 30 goals and scored two goals in the historic victory over Georgia in 2006, the All Whites first triumph against European opposition.

71 matches/30 goals

Off the bench:

Chris Killen

Has reached the giddy heights of the British game with stints at Celtic and Middlesborough. Still only 28-years-old, the towering striker has time to add his tally of ten goals in 30 international appearances.

30 matches/10 goals

Chris Zorocich

A tough defender who captained his country through two Confederations Cup campaigns in 1999 and 2003.

57 matches/1 goal
