New Zealand’s Highest Capped Player Call Final Time

New Zealand’s Ivan Vicelich has decided to retire from his international career after 19 years.  He is their most capped player with 88 appearances for the “All Whites.”  The hugh point for Vicelich was in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.  Although they were eliminated in the group stage, they were the only team to go undefeated at the tournament.  Vicelich said: “Playing for the All Whites is an honour and a privilege for me and my family and I enjoyed every single match I played for the national team.”  Vicelich represented the All Whites with distinction at three FIFA Confederations Cups: Mexico 1999, France 2003 and South Africa 2009.  His final match with the All Whites was a loss in intercontinental play-off for Brazil 2014 against Mexico last year.  Vicelich has been a star for New Zealand for 19 long years(1995-2013) and will not be forgotten.
