    ‘We can achieve something significant’ – NZ boss Hudson

    Despite New Zealand’s underdogs tag, head coach Anthony Hudson says the team is not at the Confederations Cup simply to make up the numbers, and believes the team can achieve something significant.

    Englishman Hudson, 36, today becomes the youngest-ever Confed Cup manager.
    He says his team will focus just as much on posing an attacking threat, as opposed to simply trying to nullify teams.

    He’s picked the brains of some of the world’s greats – including Jose Mourinho – in his quest to improve the NZ team, and Hudson is clearly a man going places.
    Check out our interview with him ahead of tournament here:


    He has experience in the ranks in the form of Shane Smeltz and Chris Wood (more on him later), and also has exciting young talent such as 22-year-old Ryan Thomas, who plays at PEC Zwolle in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Several of the team’s players are based at Wellington Phoenix, the country’s only professional team, which plays its football in Australia’s A-League.

Others are at clubs in England, the US, the Netherlands and Germany.
