Copa América 2021: This was the arrival of the Peruvian team to its concentration hotel in Goiana
Ricardo Gareca’s team arrived at their concentration hotel in Goiana, thinking about their next duel against Colombia for the Copa América 2021. The ‘bicolor’ was beaten by Brazil, so they need a victory to dream of qualifying for the next phase.

Chile managed to convert us 4 goals, but the result was 4-3 in the last Qualifiers, just like Costa Rica that in a friendly made us three goals, but the result was 3-2. Only Scratch and coffee growers have made such a difference for us.

With this win, the team can be very touched for tomorrow’s duel against Colombia, for the second date of the America Cup. When thinking about some variants in the eleven, Ricardo Gareca opted for the same scheme and the same men, although with the entry of Alexander Callens by the injured Luis Abram.

The team responded. From the captaincy to Yotún, in his 100th match, to the effort of Lapadula and López, their bets. A team that washed its face from the defeats suffered against Colombia itself in Qualifying and Brazil at the start of this Copa América.

In the previous goals, this is how the coach reacted.

Vargas returned

Brazil 3-0 Colombia – Qualifiers / 11-17-2015

In his fourteenth match at the command of the Peruvian team, Ricardo Gareca suffered his first win. It was Brazil for the Qualifiers for Russia 2018. Peru closed 2015 with a 3-0 in El Salvador de Bahia after beating Paraguay on the third date. Thus, in four days, the bicolor barely added three points in the contest (defeats against Colombia, Chile and Brazil).

Brazil is better, undoubtedly. It is raising its level, it is reaching an important level. It is not that Peru did not have the concerns with Brazil. But this has to do with effectiveness

Ricardo Gareca

In the playoffs you have to win, it strengthens you. We have the potential to recover, it is not the beginning. This is reason for analysis because the balance is negative. We will grow as we become more aggressive

Ricardo Gareca

The need for points and the thrashing suffered made Gareca see the need for changes in the red and white. For the March 2016 call, date 5-6, He surprised with the presence of Juan Vargas, although he only played against Venezuela. The defender’s call, at that time at Betis, came after overcoming an injury.

As it is remembered, in that duel against the llaneros, the income of Edison Flores and Raúl Ruidíaz changed the face of the team, so Gareca began to take them into account. For their next friendly matches, the call of Miguel Trauco appeared, who consolidated his position in the Copa América Centenario.

With doubts to the Cup

Peru 0-3 Colombia – Friendly / 06-08-2019

With the suitcases ready to travel to Brazil for the Copa América 2019, the national team closed its preparation with a friendly against Colombia in Lima. The score was 3-0 and with it the doubts facing the continental tournament.

Peru was up to the task. We did not have so many situations, we had approximations, but the imprecision made us so fine in the last touch

Ricardo Gareca

Some guys were a little better, but in general terms the game was distorted when we were left with 10 men

Ricardo Gareca

Although it was a friendly conditioned by the red to Yotún when the result was 1-0 for Colombia. In that match the starter in the rear was Miguel Araujo, while in the debut of the Copa América that position was taken by Carlos Zambrano, who was wearing red and white again after three years and six months.

Who also reappeared in the first match of the Copa América was Jefferson Farfán. He did not participate in the friendlies against Costa Rica and Colombia, as he was recovering from a hip injury. Jeffry started against Venezuela (0-0), scored a goal against Bolivia (3-1) and played against Brazil (0-5), a game in which he suffered a knee injury, which took him out of the fields almost for one year.

Fragile in front of the local

Brazil 5-0 Peru – Copa América / 06-22-2019

The end of the group stage seemed to be the end of the Peruvian team in the America Cup 2019. The 5-0 win made the whole project shake in the tournament. Araujo was the starter in that meeting. Andy Polo repeated on the right since he did not take André Carrillo into account, as in the games against Venezuela and Bolivia.

Peru had to wait for the results of the other groups to decide whether or not to qualify for the quarterfinals, as it had been doing since 1997.

They greatly surpassed us from start to finish, we did not expect this but it happened, the most important thing is to capitalize on all this that has happened to us, although it is painful, for all the people who came and for us in particular.

Ricardo Gareca

Confirmed the classification as the second best third, the rival in the quarterfinals was Uruguay. The first forced change was the departure of the injured Jefferson Farfán. Cueva happened to be the hitch and Edison Flores entered to occupy the left end. Meanwhile, Zambrano returned to the title.

What’s more, Gareca he had to turn to André Carrillo, who had barely had minutes against Venezuela. It was strange not to see the ‘Culebra’ in the eleven, and the rumor of an indiscipline grew that was denied, although also his performance in the four friendlies prior to the tournament was very low due to the inactivity he had for not having played from the beginning May with his club Al Hilal.

The 0-0 against Uruguay ended in the penalty shootout that Peru was able to overcome thanks to Pedro Gallese’s penalty saved to Luis Suárez. Peru entered the semifinals, where they thrashed Chile. After suffering a win in the group stage, the bicolor applied another and got to the final, where Brazil again beat it.

Worst game

Peru 0-3 Colombia – Qualifiers / June 3, 2021

Peru had already been beaten and the defeat against Colombia seemed like the KO when it was just the fifth date of the Qualifiers. Peru was controlled and totally dominated. Paolo Guerrero was very out of rhythm due to the injury he was dragging, while winger Advíncula was not the attacker he thought Gareca. The goal and the red to Miguel Trauco at the end of the first half made the game happen to be all of Colombia.

They beat us, it was an even game in the first half. We are in a situation in which, unfortunately, we received a goal from a set ball at the end and then came the expulsion of Trauco. They are situations that ended up complicating us

Ricardo Gareca

The good, confirm the predisposition and level of Gianluca Lapadula. With him from ‘9’ we went to Quito and a new victory of those that borders on the epic was achieved. Marco López was ‘discovered’ as a reliable winger and above all, the confidence of a team that has fallen behind was renewed.

Lapadula won the job, so much so that Ricardo Gareca did not make drama in leaving out of the call for the America Cup to Paolo Guerrero.

Terrible start

Brazil 4-0 Peru – Copa América / June 17, 2021

For the start of this America Cup, Gareca it was with the eleven that was expected due to the absences in the summoned list. Roe deer on the wing, by Advínvula for permission in his club. López on the left, after the good game in Quito. And Lapadula in front instead of Paolo Guerrero.

Peru tried to defend themselves with the ball at their feet, but never proposed something dangerous in the Brazilian area. Thus, the locals were gaining ground and based on the various characteristics it has, opened the game to end it in a landslide.

We are at a stage where we need to see guys who live this experience. The idea is to see and observe to grow as a selection. Anyone we brought can come in at any time. What better experience than this

Ricardo Gareca

The changes to Gareca. Peru ended up playing against Brazil with six players who play in League 1: Corzo and Ramos, starters, plus the income of Iberico, Valera, Arias and Távara.

For Sunday’s game against Colombia, some variants were expected, but only Callens entered for Abram. The New York City defender more than complied so that Gareca can achieve his first victory over the coffee growers.
