With their opponent confirmed, New Zealand Football is close to confirming the details of the Intercontinental Playoff for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The All Whites, who defeated the Solomon Islands 8-3 on aggregate to book their place in the qualifier, will meet Peru home and away in the international window from 6 – 14 November.

The World No 12 finished as the fifth-ranked South American team after they drew 1-1 with Colombia.
