Video: All Whites settle into Lima with training session ahead of Peru showdown

The All Whites are stepping up preparation for the second leg of their intercontinental play-off with Peru on Thursday, getting stuck into training in Lima.

After arriving in the Peruvian capital last night, the All Whites hit the park to prepare themselves for Thursday's deciding leg, where they'll face their hosts for a spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

After Saturday's clash in Wellington ended at 0-0, both sides head into the return fixture with everything to play for, with the All Whites needing just a score draw to secure their World Cup spot, thanks to the away goals rule.
