(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) PERUVIAN SHAMAN, JUAN OSCO, SAYING: "We are going to win, don't worry. Here, we are giving spiritual strength from three regions - the coast, mountains and the jungle - with the good natives, with the good snakes, with good perfumes, essences and flowers for Peru." But first Peru will have to defeat New Zealand... considered to be the underdog. The two countries face off Wednesday night in a second leg playoff for the final spot in next year's tournament. The first game in Wellington, ended in a scoreless draw. New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson says the pressure is now on Peru. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) NEW ZEALAND NATIONAL SOCCER TEAM HEAD COACH, ANTHONY HUDSON, SAYING: "Everyone knows Peru is the favorite. You can easily understand it. And we know that if Peru loses, it will be a national disaster." Peru will try to avert that disaster by scoring early, as they try to reach the World Cup for the first time since 1982.
