New Zealand are back in FIFA Under-20 World Cup action today needing a victory over Uruguay if they are to harbour any hopes of qualification to the next stage.

Following Sunday's disappointing 3-0 loss to Uzbekistan, the Junior All Whites need three points this afternoon against the Uruguayans to have a chance of progressing.

Their opponents also lost their opening match, going down 1-0 to Croatia.

Tim Payne is expected to feature once again, the Rovers midfielder played the full match in Bursa last time out.
