With over 50 caps for the All Whites (including 48 'A' internationals), Simon injects vital experience, and a dead ball threat, to a young Oly Whites midfield. One of the first kiwis to blaze the now well-worn trail to professional football via the American collegiate system, the former LA Galaxy and Fulham FC player finally gets a chance of Olympic success after his 1996 U-23 side were pipped on goal difference by Australia for a spot in Atlanta despite Simon's eight goal spree in as many games.
