And who can blame him? After all, what he will be doing here is starting for the Galaxy in just another Major League Soccer game against the Colorado Rapids. In Guadalajara, he would have been starting for Oceania champion New Zealand against European champion Germany in the FIFA Confederations Cup.

The way Galaxy midfielder Simon Elliott explains it, it's a farm town you visit not so much to get away from it all but to get it all away from you. If you want to chuck it, Taihape's the place to be. It is, in short, the gumboot-throwing capital of the world. A pause, now, for a word about gumboots. The rest of the world calls them Wellington boots.

World Cup 2010: NEW ZEALAND FIFA ranking: 79 Overall World Cup record: 0-3-0 Coach: Ricki Herbert Best performance: First round, 1982 Overview: The outmanned Kiwis, back in the World Cup finals after a 28-year absence, are led by fullback Ryan Nelson, who has proved his ability in a long career with Blackburn of the English Premier League, and former Galaxy midfielder Simon Elliott.
