Mexico, after missing out on an automatic slot during the CONCACAF qualifying stages, thrashed the All Whites 5-1 in Mexico City a week ago in the first leg and El Tri coach Miguel Herrera says his team is ready to finish off the job.

Herrera also added that there will be no complacency in the second leg.

“We are going in with the idea that this is 0-0 and we aren’t going to risk anything,” Herrera was quoted as telling an ESPN Spanish program.

“We are going into this match with the same attitude of being as or even more determined than we were in the previous match.”

New Zealand were branded as an “easy side” by many after last Wednesday’s defeat and although they haven’t done anything to convince anyone that they will cause a shock at home, they will want to give the home supporters something to cheer about in the second leg.

The home side will be without striker Chris Wood, who is suspended after picking up another yellow card in the first leg.
