Tim Brown says Ryan Nelsen's the right choice

The man who's been replaced as All Whites captain says Ryan Nelsen is the right choice to lead the New Zealand football team.

Nelsen's been permanently reinstated as All Whites captain on his return to the full New Zealand senior side for Saturday's match against New Caledonia in Noumea.

Tim Brown, who's sitting out a 1-match suspension but will return a vice-captain for the home leg in Auckland next Wednesday, says he has no qualms about Nelsen taking the captaincy back from him...

He says when he got the job it was always on the understanding it was Nelsen's position, and rightfully so.
