From Morning Report, 6:11 am on 17 November 2017

The All Whites World Cup dream is over after a 2-0 loss to Peru in their World Cup qualifier in Lima. Peruvian football fans celebrated through the night after their team gained the final place in next year's championship in Russia. Ranked tenth in the world, it's the first time in 35 years the Peruvian side has qualified for the championship. The New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson spoke last night of his pride in the All Whites. He complimented his players for taking everything in their stride. RNZ's Simon Hampton was there for the action.
