EL TRI ON THE EDGE: New Zealand will go all-out attack against Mexico - Brockie

Jeremy Brockie suggests New Zealand have to go on the attack when they meet Mexico in the second leg of their World Cup playoff on Wednesday night.

The All Whites find themselves in the unenviable position of being 5-1 down against El Tri in the intercontinental qualifier ahead of the return bout in Wellington and everybody involved knows they have a mountain of work in front of them.

Wellington Phoenix forward Brockie, who was replaced by Marco Rojas just before the hour-mark at the Azteca Stadium last week, says that he and his New Zealand teammates will have to be on the front foot from the first whistle.

"Everyone knows what we have to do and that's go out there and at least score four goals,'' Brockie told the NZ Herald.

"So there's no room for defending now. Obviously we've got to be aware of it but the mindset's definitely going to be going forward and attacking and putting on a good display for our home fans.''
