The MK Dons defender has made 50 appearances for the All Whites, and though he missed out on adding to his total recently in friendlies against DR Congo and Australia, he could feature in the games against Greece on November 17 and the Republic of Ireland on November 21.

His involvement in the latest squad means he is set to miss the League Two fixture against Dons' rivals AFC Wimbledon at Stadium MK on November 18, and the Bristol Street Motors Trophy game against Northampton Town on November 21.
