8:19 am on 11 June 2010

The All Whites have begun the final leg of their football World Cup journey.

They've settled into their accommodation at Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Estate and will train at nearby Sinada Stadium.

The All Whites play a training match against Chile on Thursday morning with their opening World Cup match against Slovakia late the following Tuesday.

The New Zealanders have been on the road for 18 days following a brief camp back home and have since travelled over 32,000km,

They got a taste of altitude and played three tough warm-up games against Australia, Serbia and Slovenia with one win and two competitive losses.
