All Whites set to play in Americas

1:31 pm on 1 October 2013

The All Whites will soon announce they'll play three football games in the Americas this month, as they continue their build-up to November's World Cup intercontinental playoff.

Two games against MLS club side Chivas USA and Mexicans Queretaro next week in Los Angeles will be followed by a third game versus a yet-to-be-determined CONCACAF nation.

Once that international friendly's confirmed for this FIFA window, the two club matches will be signed off too.

The idea is to replicate the travel component of next month's big qualifier against either Mexico, Panama or Honduras, with the All Whites flying in from LA to whichever nation they face, then flying home again.
