NZ Football to mount Olympic appeal

New Zealand were kicked out of the under-23 tournament this month, after their beaten semi-final opponents Vanuatu successfully protested that South African-born defender Deklan Wynne was ineligible for the Oly-Whites.

The Oceania Football Confederation disciplinary committee last week provided a written explanation for the disqualification.

The reasons will be disputed by NZF following scrutiny from its lawyers.
