All Whites goalie keeps place

6:02 am on 22 June 2010

The All Whites goalie Mark Paston will keep his place in the starting line-up for Friday morning's final World Cup group match against Paraguay, despite the return from suspension of Glen Moss.

Paston's outstanding performance during yesterday's 1-all draw with Italy has helped the All Whites stay in contention for a place in the knockout phase of the tournament.

Coach Ricki Herbert says vice captain and midfielder Tim Brown will probably be named on the bench again for the Paraguay match, despite having recovered from a broken shoulder.
