All Whites to take on USA

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 18/08/2016

The New Zealand national football side will take on the United States in an international friendly on October 11.

The All Whites will play the match in Washington D.C. just three days after their friendly against Mexico in Nashville.

The world No.93 side are expected to field a full-strength side including West Ham enforcer Winston Reid, veteran Shane Smeltz and Storm Roux.

Head coach Anthony Hudson said the matches would be some of the toughest his side has played in years.

They would help his side prepare for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers and next year's Confederations Cup.

"The States and Mexico are two teams that always compete well at the FIFA World Cup and both have large followings," Hudson said.

"We're hoping for some big crowds to really test ourselves."
