Striker Rory Fallon scored in the final minute of the first half with a header from Leo Bertos's corner and goalkeeper Mark Paston saved a 51st minute penalty from Bahrain's Sayed Adnan to seal their spot in South Africa next year.

The first leg in Manama last month ended 0-0.

Oceania champions New Zealand's only previous World Cup appearance was in Spain in 1982.
