All Whites captain says heat not an issue

8:50 am on 10 October 2009

The All Whites captain Ryan Nelsen's not worried that the back injury which kept him out of Blackburn Rovers' last Premier League match will bother him during tomorrow mornings's World Cup qualifier in Bahrain.

And he doesn't think his time in the cool north of England will mean he'll have a problem acclimatising to the heat in Manama.

Ryan Nelson says he's looking forward to playing in dry conditions which should produce an open and attacking game.
