Can anyone tell me what we need to get through to the world cup.

We are playing Peru twice, do we need to win both games or just one?

Cheers

It's the aggregate score of both games.

 

E.g. NZ-Peru: 1-0, Peru-NZ: 2-0, aggregate score 2-1 to Peru, Peru goes through.

 

Away goals count 'double'

 

E.g. NZ-Peru: 1-0, Peru-NZ: 2-1, aggregate score 2-2 but NZ goes through because they scored an away goal.

 

If it's tied at full-time after the 2nd game, E.g. NZ-Peru: 2-1, Peru-NZ: 2-1, aggregate score 3-3 then there will be extra time of 15 minutes each way.  If it' still tied up there will be a penalty shoot-out (for which the double away goal rule no longer aplies).

You need to win over the two legs,not sure but I'd imagine away goals will count if its close

Just got home from the game.

 

Despite it being a scoreless draw and the less than mediocre quality football it was very entertaining.  Fantastic crowd and a great atmosphere, especially with the passion of the Peruvian fans.

 

@Boeingflyer Although NZ didn't win we're still very much in this.  A draw in Lima with goals scored, or a win, means NZ will qualify.

Thanks for the breakdown, managed to catch the end of it on TV.

I was there for the Bahrain game years ago, first ever match and it was amazing!!!

There is a clear difference in class between Peru and NZ. Peru played to instructions not to concede a goal, and NZ couldn’t score one. Peru 3-0 in Lima.

Just reading the coverage of the way the Peru fans are treating our players and fans in Lima. What a bunch of a'holes!. Kind of regretting being so nice to them last week in Wellington.

Yeah and I recall a story about some Peruvian official (mayor, MP, something) having a whinge after a Kiwi football official suggested our crowd give the Peruvians a hostile reception in the first leg. He said that Peru loves the game and would always treat their opponents with respect, blah blah. Now look at them!

At least it was an open play goal and not the result of someone taking a dive.
