9:33 am on 18 November 2009

The Wellington Phoenix are determined not to be caught out with a bad football hangover this weekend as they prepare to play the Newcastle Jets in Australia.

The Phoenix A-League side includes six members of the All Whites squad that beat Bahrain 1-nil on Saturday to secure a place in next year's football world cup.

All White and Phoenix midfielder Leo Bertos says although the World Cup buzz hasn't worn off, the side is firmly focussed on what they need to do for the win in Newcastle...

Leo Bertos says the team is feeling confident going into Sunday's game, having won their last meeting 3-nil earlier this month.
