After the draw last December, everyone agreed that the group that had inherited France for the 2018 World Cup was more than affordable. Admittedly, Australia, Peru and Denmark are of a lower caliber. However, it will take the Blues to be extremely serious and applied during the group stage. Australia, for example, crushed the Czech Republic (4-0) on Friday, while the Danes were solid against Sweden on Saturday (0-0). Peru will play its match tonight against Saudi Arabia tonight.
Indeed, this Peruvian team, back in World Cup after 38 years of absence could be the nice surprise of the Russian tournament. It is a little known selection but his play on the ground, extremely vertical in the critical moments, could offer some frights to Raphael Varane or Samuel Umtiti during the second game of the Blues at the World Cup 2018. As evidenced, this superb collective goal registered by the Peruvians face … Croatia, a good selection then. It was last March and the Blanquirroja had even imposed 2-0, and this, in the absence of three major players: goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and defender Alberto Rodriguez (injured) and striker Paolo Guerrero (suspended ). Croatia was complete.
Pour ceux qui se demande ça vaut quoi le Pérou, voilà une belle leçon de football sous vos yeux. 🙈

If Edison Flores concludes this superb action, the speed of projection Peruvian may surprise more than one in Russia. Especially since the star of this selection, Paolo Guerrero, was allowed to play in the World Cup. The Blues are warned.
