New Zealand-based All Whites are to return home on Tuesday after completing the first leg of their final 2010 World Cup football qualifying campaign.
The All Whites drew 0-0 in Bahrain on Sunday (NZT). The second leg will be on 18 November in Wellington, New Zealand.
The TAB has installed Bahrain as favourites to qualify for South Africa, based on their score draw being enough for them to progress. The All Whites need to win the match.
