New Zealand brace for Peru onslaught

The All Whites proved they can foot it with Peru but can they go one step further and win in Lima

The strong defense of the New Zealand team stopped the Peruvian players from scoring the goals for the victory in the first match in Wellington, which ended 8-8.

Peru wants to qualify for the World Cup after 36 years of failures in the classificatory stages.

Coach Anthony Hudson and Reid faced a huge posse of local media in the pre-match press conference, with nearly 100 journalists in the room.

"We know that if Peru loses, it will be a national disaster", Hudson said.

"And because of that pressure, I think they're going to start very fast".

In the hours leading up to New Zealand's first leg World Cup play-off against the fifth-placed South American nation, Peru's small but committed group of travelling fans provided a glimpse of the football fervour that grips their diverse continent and a small vision of what will be waiting for the All Whites at Estadio Nacional on Thursday (AEDT).

Coached by Argentinean Ricardo Gareca, the red-white returned to its homeland from New Zealand on Saturday 11 at 06:15 PM (local time).

"It's not easy to break down their defensive wall but we have to find every way possible to do it", Farfan told reporters on Tuesday.

Hudson, meanwhile, said he expects Burnley's Chris Wood to be ready to play after a recent hamstring problem.

"We still have one more final and we have to give everything to get to the World Cup", said Farfan, who plays for Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow.

"There was a witch doctor who put a curse on the New Zealand team, men stamped on a poster of the New Zealand team, waving a live snake above their heads, while steam from a potion wafted through the air".
