The All Whites have completed the job in shaky fashion.

New Zealand's through to November's intercontinental playoff after a 2-all second leg Oceania World Cup qualifier draw against the Solomon Islands in Honiara.

It gives the tourists an 8-3 win on aggregate.

The All Whites appeared on track for a comfortable win, after a Myer Bevan goal and an own goal put them up 2-nil early in proceedings.

The Solomons scored from the penalty spot either side of halftime to level.

The All Whites now await the fifth placed South American team in a home and away playoff in November for a berth at next year's football World Cup.
