The reaction from the players has been good after their high-tempo strategy in their 1-1 draw with China at the weekend.

The majority of the squad spent the next day in a recovery session and Hudson says the side is fully fit and he's not expecting any fatigue in the game.

The match kicks off at half past midnight.

Meanwhile Auckland City have opened the OFC Presidents Cup with a 4-0 win over the Singapore under-23 team in Auckland.

Angel Berlanga, Dae Wook, Mario Bilen and Andrew Milne scored the goals for Auckland.

In the day's other game Amicale of Vanuatu beat the Fiji under-20s 3-0.

Bodden Town from the Cayman Islands next play the Singapore under-23s and Amicale play Bahrain's Busaiteen.

The tournament is an invitation event involving teams from Oceania, Asia and CONCACAF.
