All Whites to play Peru for World Cup berth

12 October 2017

They will face New Zealand in a two-legged tie, the victor of which will earn a spot at the World Cup.

"Peru are very good, they are highly ranked and they got a great result against Argentina in qualification, but I feel, out of all of them, we can take confidence out of having to play them".

"So we managed the game as we needed to".

The first playoff match will played on either 10 or 11 November, with the return leg likely to be on the 14th November (15 November NZT).

"But I think that out of all the teams we were looking at, certainly from my point of view, Peru was the team I would've liked to have played".

In a helter-skelter final round of South American qualifying, Los Incas' 1-1 draw with Colombia was enough to see them finish fifth, at the expense of Chile.
