The team that participated in the Merdeka Tournament was at the time
considered to be a New Zealand 'B' team. Allan Jones (selected as a 
coach solely for this tournament) selected ten players from the New 
Zealand Youth team and seven "senior" players. The aim was to give the 
young players experience of international football prior to Youth World 
Cup qualifiers. However, at some latter stage the Merdeka Tournament
matches have been reclassified and they are part of the official list 
as compiled by Barry Smith for "An Association with Soccer". 

Note that not everybody in New Zealand regards those matches as full 
internationals. Essentially, the problem is that there is no consensus 
on what a “full international” is, or is not, for New Zealand.

Again, the team that participated in the Merdeka Tournament was at the time
considered to be a New Zealand 'B' team. Allan Jones (selected as a coach 
solely for this tournament) was instructed not to select any of the 18 members in 
the World Cup squad. However, at some latter stage the Merdeka Tournament
matches have been reclassified (the 'B' tag was dropped) and they are part of 
the official list as compiled by Barry Smith for "An Association with Soccer".

Note that not everybody in New Zealand regards those matches as full internationals. 
Essentially, the problem is that there is no consensus on what a “full international” 
is, or is not, for New Zealand.
