The All Whites will touch down in Lima this morning with their World Cup dream still intact following the nil-all draw with Peru in the opening leg in Wellington on Saturday. The New Zealanders defended well against the 10th ranked team in the world and had a couple of chances late in the game to score the winner. The coach Anthony (Antony) Hudson says he expects to have a full fit squad to pick from for Thursady afternoon's (NZ time) game in Lima. Hudson spoke just before the team flew out last night and the positive situation that his side is in.
