All Whites swamped by Peruvian media ahead of second leg World Cup qualifier

The All Whites can't even buy a coffee without being centre-stage in Lima, as the countdown continues to Thursday's 3pm (NZ time) crunch World Cup qualifier against Peru.

The media frenzy is intense from the Peruvians. All White coach Antony Hudson went out and was flocked by a number of reporters and cameras, in the end, the New Zealand coach had to head back to the hotel without his beverage. 

On top of that, American Punk/rock band Green Day are in Lima and it appears they are staying at the same hotel as New Zealand, as fans in Green Day shirts also surround the hotel.

New Zealand have changed their training venue due to all the media attention, while the team bus has police surrounding it. 

Last month, some Peruvian football fans released a video showing how dedicated they are to the team and showed clips of them partying outside rival's hotels during the night.

The winner of the second leg in Lima will advance to the FIFA World Cup in Russia next year.

Peru have not qualified for the World Cup since 1982 while the All Whites last competed in 2010.
