Peru have kicked their pre-match hype up another level for this afternoon's World Cup qualifier against the All Whites with the country's air force taking to the skies with messages of support for the team.

The Peruvian Airforce had wings of red and white stripes with "Vamos Peru" (Go Peru) written on them while the pilots also wore team jerseys under their gear.

According to a NZ Herald report the fighter jets also flew over the All Whites hotel in an effort to disrupt New Zealand's preparations.

It's the second drastic action Peru has taken today after fans also targeted the All Whites' hotel this morning with fireworks to break up the team's sleeping patterns for today's match.

A shaman also put a curse on the All Whites earlier this week.

Peru are desperate as a football nation to return to the World Cup having not qualified since 1982.
