Heading into yesterday's matches any one of five nations could have occupied that fifth spot - with Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Paraguay the other contenders - but Hudson admitted that the Andean nation was one of his preferences.

They rode out the draw to finish fifth and book a two-legged play-off berth with the All Whites, while Colombia finished fourth.

With news circulating the arena that Brazil had taken the lead against Chile, and Lionel Messi was dragging Argentina to Russian Federation singlehandedly, nerves were high as Peru searched for an equalizer.

Of those sides, Peru was the weakest on paper and had the dimmest aura.

"Whoever we get it's a tough game, very tough, but out of all the teams we were looking at, certainly from my point of view, Peru was a team we would have liked to have played", said Hudson. We are at home in the first game and the players really believe.

Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri suggested the Monaco forward had instructed the players to take it easy in order to ensure that both teams would keep their World Cup dreams alive.

Saturday, November 11 could be the likely compromise for the New Zealand play-off after a couple of discussions between both sides.

Ricardo Gareca, Peru's Coach, put it this way: "One of the goals we came here with was, first of all, to have the possibility to directly qualify, and if not, to reach the playoffs, and we got it".

The All Whites will then travel to Lima for the return leg.

Peru's national football team could win a spot in the World Cup for the first time in almost four decades.
