Peru fans: 'It's passion, we follow our country'

Peru fans: 'It's passion, we follow our country'”

Peru have touched down in Wellington ahead of Saturday's World Cup playoff with the All Whites, greeted by hundreds of screaming fans.

"Only two All Whites teams have ever qualified for the FIFA World Cup, and Coach Anthony Hudson has named his most experienced squad to give New Zealand the best fighting chance of getting to Russian Federation in 2018", said Minister Robertson.

Peru were the surprise package of the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying tournament and their strong finish left continental champions and bitter rivals Chile out of the qualifying places.

"It's very exciting, because in South America soccer is the biggest sport, it's passion. we follow our country".

Peru are bidding to qualify for their first World Cup in 35 years.

But Jorge reckons the visitors have the first leg sewn up.

The All Whites have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six matches (including against the Solomon Islands) and the price of evens (2.00) for Peru to score over 1.5 goals should appeal.

Mario Vega travelled from Sydney with his children and said they were about to witness a slice of history.

"I've got my kids here - that next generation's going to see the Peruvians make the World Cup, we believe anyway".

The team will take on Peru at Westpac Stadium tomorrow night.

The Wellington match will take place in front of a sold-out 38,500 fans with the return leg on November 15 at the Estadio Nacional in Lima.The victor books a place in the 2018 World Cup finals in Russian Federation.
