EL TRI ON THE EDGE: New Zealand players give insight into Mexico's famous Azteca Stadium

New Zealand meet Mexico in the first leg of their World Cup playoff at the famed Estadio Azteca on Wednesday night (Thursday morning AEDT).

Some of the All Whites players took to Twitter to give fans an insight into how they are preparing for the vital away leg in Mexico City.

Here, striker Jeremy Brockie is pictured with defender Andrew Durante, dwarfed by the towering stands of the Azteca.

And the Wellington Phoenix ace also took a wander down the hallways of the 105,000-capacity venue to find a little piece of history.

Perth Glory star Shane Smeltz also gave us a sneak peek at the colossal stadium.

Veteran Ivan Vicelich also got in on the act.

The All Whites arrived in Mexico City not too long ago. Check out some pics as Marco Rojas requires police assistance to get through the media throng.

And with just over 24 hours to go until kick-off, New Zealanders everywhere were getting excited.
