A report in this morning's NZ papers says that SoccerNZ has approached our great Southern sporting rivals, Australia and South Africa, about the possibility of playing a football tri-series, rather like the rugby one. The games would take place in London because:
1. a sponsor has indicated willingnes to get on board in London,
2. huge numbers of young Kiwis, Aussies and Jappies base themsleves in London for a couple of years working and touring the world,
3. more and more players from all three countries are now plying their trade (and presumably their troth) in Europe and it would be easier for them to play there than here,
4. neutral venues would eliminate a home and way format.

I think it sounds like a great idea.

Of course, I would expect all BBSers and Palace fans in general to support New Zealand in any of these matches, out of a well founded loyalty to me, rather than our convict cousins, out of some misguided loyalty to Popovic.
