FORMER Newport County AFC manager Anthony Hudson has expressed his frustration with the tactics used by the Peruvians to disrupt New Zealand’s build-up to their World Cup play-off.

Hudson, who has been in charge of the All Whites since 2014, saw his World Cup dream ended by a 2-0 loss to Peru in Lima in the early hours of this morning.

Delayed and diverted flights, tardy bus drivers, lost gate keys, early morning fireworks and military flyovers were just some of what New Zealand had to deal with during their time in Lima.

"I'm always really honest and I probably shouldn't be at times, but I think it's been poor," Hudson told the New Zealand Herald after the game.

“We got on the airplane and I asked the stewardess how long it was to Peru and she said ‘We're not going to Peru, we're going to Chile!’ “Ever since then, it's been unbelievable. We didn't sleep at all last night with the fireworks.

“Today I thought I'd grab a quick hour's sleep by the pool and all of a sudden all these jet fighter planes are flying past and the pilots are taking selfies in the planes with their Peru shirts on.

“But never once in the two or three days here in Peru have we used that as an excuse,” added the 36-year-old, who was in charge of the Exiles between April and September 2011.

“We've got such an honest group of players who have dealt with it so well – they’ve been so calm with it all.

“We just got on with it and said we wouldn't let it beat us and we did deal with it very well.”

Goals from Jefferson Farfan and Christian Ramos gave Peru the 2-0 win, which sends them to the World Cup for the first time since 1982 after a 0-0 draw.

The victory was greeted with delirious scenes both inside Estadio Nacional and in the streets of Lima as thousands of Peruvians celebrated the victory.
