The All Whites are set to play away games against China and Malaysia later this year.

New Zealand Football is yet to announce the internationals but Fifa's official website lists the All Whites playing friendly games against China on November 14 and Malaysia on November 18.

The national side will play their first game under new coach Anthony Hudson against Uzbekistan in Tashkent on September 8.

Hudson will also coach a New Zealand 'A' side against the Wellington Phoenix at Taupo's Owen Delany Park on August 17.

Following his appointment on Tuesday, Hudson told Fairfax Media that it was vital for the All Whites to play more matches.

There have been just two so far this year; an away loss against Japan and a home draw with South Africa.
