Nelsen wants patience from football team against China

6:04 pm on 7 August 2008

The New Zealand men's football captain Ryan Nelsen says it'll be difficult against China as the hosts will come out firing in front of their home crowd.

60-thousand are expected to be baying for China but Nelsen says if the Oly Whites can withstand the first half hour they can get into the game.

Kick-off's at quarter to midnight.
