Evening all, highlights from All Whites trip to Seoul in 2015, with a clutch of debuts including Marinovic, Lewis, De Vries, Dyer, Van Den Broek and Tzimopoulos.  Actually a good performance, bit unlucky with the final result.

Think Luka Prelevic takes that title, but van den Broek definitely the most obscure from that whole Hudson initiative trying to find overseas players with Kiwi connections

When Wynne turned out to be ineligible, so did Burfoot as well as Van Den Broek.

Van Den Broek had a mother who wasn't kiwi, but lived in NZ for 5 years and gained citizenship. 

I think (Correct me if wrong) this impacted Van Den Broek and he was never called up again. Never rated him that much anyway. 

He had a younger brother who was a keeper who also got himself a passport but has since fallen off the radar. 

Passport doesn't guarantee eligibility right? Cause Wynne had one, he got it when I was at school with him and then 2015 happened...

All Whites went to Myanmar in 2015, and should've returned with Hudson's first win, but instead finished with a frustrating 1-1 draw.  Match featured Shane Smeltz's last AWs goal, and debuts for Tom Doyle, Liam Higgins, Harshae Raniga and Alex Rufer.  They really (really) should have won this game...

Actually, Van den Broek IS eligible but NZ Football got flustered after Wynnegate and deemed him ineligible themselves, without actually checking properly, because he didn't meet the clause that Wynne failed on. However VDB didn't need to meet that clause (5 years after age 18) because he is a NZ citizen from birth (as his mum was a NZ citizen not from descent when he was born), despite never actually living in NZ.
