Nelsen non-commital about All Whites future

7:00 am on 26 June 2010

The All Whites captain Ryan Nelsen is non-commital about his international future despite leading New Zealand unbeaten through the football world cup in South Africa.

The All Whites drew their final pool game nil-all with Paraguay but failed to advance to the knockout phase, having also drawn with world champions Italy and Slovakia.

Nelsen, who's 33, has a year to run on his contract with English Premier League side Blackburn but says he wants to get over the disappointment of not making the last 16 before thinking about his future.

Nelsen's now returning to England with his wife expecting their second child shortly.
