Peru 'ecstatic' over NZ challenge for FIFA World Cup

From Morning Report, 7:54 am on 12 October 2017

Even though Peru didn't win automatic entry to the World Cup finals, their fans are ecstatic they just have to beat New Zealand to make it to Russia in 2018. After a dramatic last round of South American games, Peru clinched the playoff spot against us. The All Whites are ranked 113th; Peru are 12th in the world. The 'home and away' series will start in November - the first game is in Wellington, the second in Peru. Vigilio Migone is one Peruvian supporter planning to come here for the game, and joins us now.
