Qualifiers: Peru entered the fight for qualification to Qatar 2022

The Peruvian soccer team tonight delivered a significant step towards becoming fully involved in the fight for qualification for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, by beating Venezuela 2-1 in Caracas.

After playing the fourteenth date of the South American tie, the team led by Argentine DT Ricardo Gareca reached 17 units in the table and is excited about repeating the meritorious qualification four years ago, when he agreed to Russia 2018.

Peru, which had just beaten Bolivia 3-0 in Lima, reached the second consecutive victory of the campaign at the Olympic University Stadium, with goals converted by Gianluca Lapadula (at 17 minutes) and Cristian Cueva (64 minutes). The representative ‘vinotinto’, last with just 7 points, had temporarily tied, through an appearance by Darwin Machís (52 minutes).

The visiting goalkeeper, Pedro Gallese, became one of the mainstays of the Peruvian triumph, by stopping a penalty shot at Machís (at 68), after a hand in the area of ​​Miguel Trauco.

After an even first half and with few emotions in front of the goal, striker Lapadula made the difference on the board (17m.), With a header, after a cross from André Carrillo.

The Venezuelan national team reacted at the beginning of the second half and achieved equality, with a sending from side Ronald Hernández, who was capitalized by his best man, Machís, with a first intention shot.

It seemed that the local team was taking the initiative, but the advancement of its men implied that they left holes in the background and the Peruvian values ​​arose that began to disturb.

First there was a cross shot from Trauco that crashed into the post (9m.) And, later, the Cueva link hit a free kick that bounced off the barrier, dislodging Faríñez and resulted in 2-1 (19m.)

Almost immediately, and in the framework of an electrifying match, Venezuela had another chance to level the plate, when the Brazilian referee Bruno Arleu sanctioned the penalty by Trauco’s hand.

The execution, by Machís, was guessed by Gallese throwing himself at his right, so the result in favor of the visitor was upheld.

From there until the closing, the local team charged insistently but without order, while their visiting pair understood the added value that obtaining the three points represented and almost preferred to take refuge with the possession of the ball.
