England centre Brad Barritt believes the secret to beating New Zealand is to not be overawed by their achievements.
Barritt admits that although people who like to bet on rugby probably won't be backing England when they face the All Blacks at Twickenham on Saturday, he is confident they can hand the world champions their first defeat since August 2011.
On the other end of the scale, however, England head into this showdown on the back of defeats to Australia and South Africa in recent weeks.
"There is no beating about the bush, they are the best team in the world - but no team is invincible," said the Saracens stalwart.
"We don't put any player on a pedestal. We won't go in there thinking they are Gods on a rugby field.
"There's a huge amount of belief in our team. There is something special about each person.
"In order to be here you're a natural born winner and you'll do anything to get to that position to win.
"We're against an opponent that's been unbeaten over the past two years but this is a huge opportunity for us.
"At the end of the day they're just humans with two legs and two arms, albeit performing to the optimum level.
"We need to raise our game and really impose what we can on them and not give them any status that's going to help them," insisted Barritt, who will be looking to prove he and Manu Tuilagi can be an effective attacking midfield pairing, with the duo criticised for a lack of creative flair in recent Tests.
The All Blacks have swept all before them while in Europe this tour, defeating Scotland (51-22), Italy (42-10) and Wales (33-10) and are almost a rugby betting sure-thing away from finishing 2012 unbeaten.
"They're undoubtedly the best attacking team at the moment," added Barritt.
"We take huge pride in what we do on defence. I think Scotland and Wales hung off them and allow them their moves.
"We have a different philosophy - getting off the line and putting pressure on teams.
"You have to do everything as clinically as you can, all the time. There's no reason why we can't pull off an upset."
