The All Whites preparations for tomorrow night's World Cup qualifier in Tahiti havent quite gone to plan.

The side was scheduled to train on a local pitch this morning but things haven't quite gone to plan.

On arrival it was obvious no meaningful session would be able to take place, with the ground bumpy and full of holes.

With only 14 outfield players in the squad, the staff decided it was too risky and the session was called to an early end.

However, the bus which had dropped the team off had vanished, leaving the team sitting in the midday sun while calls were frantically made.
