After impressive performances for club and country, Moss attracted interest from A-League champions Melbourne Victory.

Moss was named in New Zealand's 2009 Confederations Cup squad to travel to South Africa where he played in all three games against Spain, South Africa and Iraq, where he kept a clean sheet and earned the All Whites a 0–0 draw – New Zealand's first point in a major FIFA competition.

Henric Streitman

Henric Ștefan Streitman was a Romanian journalist and political figure, who traversed the political spectrum from socialism to the far-right. He was a physicist, social commentator and publisher, known for both his polemical stances and his erudition. Struggling financially, Streitman set up several short-lived periodicals, involved himself in the cultural and political debates, from 1889 to the time of his death. In his early years, he was a promoter of natural selection ideas, a translator of Marxist and naturalist literature. A Romanian Jew who only preserved loose links with Judaism, Streitman left socialism behind before World War I, moving closer to the National Liberal Party, working alongside Ion G. Duca and Constantin Banu, he affiliated with the People's Party, serving two terms in the Senate of Romania, where he represented Bukovina. He associated with figures on the Romanian far-right, including Octavian Goga and Pamfil Șeicaru, joined the National Agrarian Party in 1932. However, in the late 1930s, the ascent of antisemitism put his political career on hold.

Streitman turned to collaboration with the military-fascist dictatorship of Ion Antonescu during World War II, becoming president of the Central Jewish Office. This assignment pitted him against non-collaborationists such as A. L. Zissu. However, his was a ceremonial office, with many of its functions supplanted by the executive leader, Nandor Gingold. Streitman survived the war by a few years, unlike Gingold, was never brought before the Romanian People's Tribunals. Streitman was a native of Piatra Neamț town, located in mountainous Western Moldavia, he was born into the Judaic religion, converted to Romanian Orthodoxy in life, but was again a practicing Jew by 1941. Like the majority of Romanian Jews living before 1920, Streitman was non-emancipated and not yet eligible for Romanian citizenship. Young Streitman was tutored, in both German and French, by the Count Jurawski, a Polish refugee; as he recalled decades "the all-knowing, all-forgiving" Jurawski was an amateur scientist who introduced his pupils, Moldavians in general, to Lamarckism and Darwinism.

Enrolled at high school, Streitman followed Romanian politics, was close to the budding socialist movement of students. In 1889, he began collaborating with Garabet Ibrăileanu's journal Școala Nouă, appearing alongside the young socialists Izabela Andrei, Panait Mușoiu, Raicu Ionescu-Rion, his articles covered a vast category of subjects, introducing the Romanian public to developments in sociology, hard science, philology. The only speaker of German in that group, he is by some as the author of articles signed I. Chilieanu. Both the anonymous article and Streitman's signed pieces discuss the differences between literary naturalism and realism, the naturalism vs. "pornography" debate of the 1880s. Streitman was educated abroad, trained in several fields, he studied physics and chemistry at the universities of Göttingen, Berlin, at the Technical College Stuttgart. Although he had become an expatriate, he continued to send his articles to Școala Nouă, before it succumbed in May 1890. In Germany, Streitman was university colleagues with several prominent Romanian intellectuals of various political hues: Barbu Brănișteanu, Gheorghe Gh.

Longinescu, Simion Mehedinți, Alexandru Tzigara-Samurcaș, etc. He traveled out of Central Europe, heard lectures in philosophy at Rome University, he obtained a Sc. D. in physical chemistry, a license degree in Philosophy. The young writer made his full debut in journalism in 1894, when he contributed to the radical-liberal newspaper Românul. However, he was by affiliated with the Sotir Circle of socialists and began contributing to the socialist magazine, Munca. Among his colleagues there was Rachel Vermont, who became his wife. Together, they circulated translations of scientific and scientistic literature. In 1894, Henric and Rachel Streitman published the first volume of Max Nordau's Degeneration; the pair highlighted the connections between Nordau and socialism, but introduced footnotes claiming to correct the author for his disagreements with Marxism. A year the literary duo returned with a version of August Bebel's Woman. Streitman's work was soon acknowledged in the literary profession, discussed by Constantin Stamatin-Nazone in his 1894 essay Profilurĭ.

As argued by historian of journalism G. Brătescu, Streitman impressed and influenced the greats of Romanian journalism with his "subtle, ironic, doubting indulgent" writing style. Moreover, Brătescu writes, Streitman was an "erudite" and a competent reader of both secular and religious literature. However, his political views were the subject of controversy: in June 1900, Streitman and Petre I. Sturdza traveled to Budapest, attending the premiere of Radu D. Rosetti's play, O lecție, being fêted by Hungarian journalists. According to Gazeta Transilvaniei, this implied that Streitman had "Hungarian sympathies", had thus befriended Romania's rivals. In 1902, Streitman followed up with the booklet Oamenii zilei. Instantanee, signing it with the pen name Almaviva. In February 1903, he was naturalized Romanian by special vote of the Senate. For a while, he affiliated with the Romanian Society for Literature and Arts, an abortive professional organization, noted for attempting to group under one roof the Romanian writers and their non-eman
