Central Coast Mariners youngster Storm Roux may make his second national team appearance for New Zealand in March, after the talented right back was included in the All Whites- squad to play Japan in Tokyo.

Roux played his debut match for New Zealand-s senior national team late in 2013 against Mexico in Wellington.

Despite the All Whites being eliminated from FIFA World Cup contention by ‘El Tri-, Roux impressed in his first match for New Zealand, and has since been earmarked as a national team player of the future for the men from the land of the long white cloud.

New Zealand will play the 2014 FIFA World Cup bound Samurai Blue on March 5, and Roux will be joined in the squad in the land of the rising sun by on loan Mariner Michael McGlinchey. McGlinchey is currently with J.League outfit Vegalta Sendai.
