The Kiwis meet the Three Lions at the FIFA World Cup Stadium in Jeju on Tuesday evening in this Group B encounter. Both are hurting after their last match and determined to put things right. England were 'heartbroken' after Korea DPR's 89th minute equaliser, whereas Colin Tuaa is expecting a vastly improved performance from his side following their 7-0 defeat by Brazil.
Although both teams can still qualify from the group, New Zealand's confidence has certainly taken a battering. They gained plaudits for their positive play from FIFA's Technical Study Group members against the Samba starlets, but it remains to be seen whether Colin Tuaa may opt to put more of his men behind the ball. England, meanwhile, will be seeing this match as a chance to grab their first-ever victory at a FIFA U-17 World Cup and perhaps a chance to score a few goals, should goal difference be needed to settle the final positions in Group B.
Both sides are reported to be at full strength for this match.
New Zealand's No8 Cory Chettleburgh will be celebrating his 16th birthday on the day of the game.
"We've probably been written off even more now after the defeat to Brazil, but our World Cup's not over. We know where we went wrong on Saturday and we're desperate to put things right against England. We want to show the world what New Zealand can do," Colin Tuaa, New Zealand coach.
"We saw New Zealand play against Brazil but as far as we're concerned it's what we do that's important. We are going out there to win the game. That's what we have to do. From our perspective, the glass is half full and not half empty and we are very positive about our situation," John Peacock, England coach.
