Daniel also clarified the origins of how football become known as the beautiful game before going on to enjoy getting access to the Phoenix changing room at Eden Park – so much so that there was some fanning necessary.

As well as the offside rule - which was explained in detail with the line "your backside is offside now" – Taylor and Daniel also discussed Phoenix fans, known as the Yellow Fever, and their tradition of taking their tops off late in games.
