Peru complete one of the greatest comebacks in WC qualifying history

Post by Perucho21 on Thu Nov 16, 2017 4:55 am

After our first 6 games the dream had pretty much ended. 4 points out of a possible 18 with the embarrassing loss to Chile at home and the embarrassing draw against Venezuela at home.

Then the copa American centenario happened, and Gareca decided to leave out established players like Pizarro, Ascues, Lobaton, Vargas, Zambrano and Farfan, leaving the youth to be part of the new era of Peru.

Then the Nelson Cabrera incident happened. And we cannot thank our Chilean rivals enough for going to fifa and complain, because in the end, it kick started our path to the comeback while Chile were once again hated by the region.

Before matchday 15 and 16, Chile claim they are the best team in the world after the Confed cup. This led to their embarrassing loss to Paraguay and then Bolivia claimed their revenge for the incident in a 1-0 win.

Meanwhile, Peru did not let the opportunity slip. They defeated Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia and Ecuador while getting crucial draws to Venezuela, Colombia and Messitina. Their only loss coming against heavy world cup favorites Brazil.

The last match day, where Peru were on the brink of elimination. In came Guerrero, probably the most underrated striker this past decade, scoring from a indirect free-kick and thanking Ospina for being a moron. Chile lost 3-0 and the "best team in the world" were out of Russia, and Peru made the playoff, to the celebration of all of CONNEBOL and as far as Mexico, as the biggest underdog story was coming to fruition while the most hated villain were defeated.
I give full props to new Zealand as they prove no team should be underrated. They gave us a good game tonight, but our quality was enough

I was brought to tears tonight, Farfan returns to a goal and the 2nd goal was the icing on the cake. Since I was 5 yrs old I dreamt about this moment.

I finally get to say my country will play at the world cup. We are on the brink of a golden generation, and this is the beginning.

As someone who truly understand what it means to see a not so fancied (and usually disregarded) NT side qualify for the WC, enjoy the moment Perucho. Really.

Third best story of WC qualifying after 1) your nation of 300+ million people fails to qualify for the World Cup after losing to *bleep* Trinidad & Tabago AND 2) Christian Eriksen's incredible WC qualifying run. Best player in the world

Calm down. Australia is already there. I strongly feel demanding New Zealand to be there as well is petty and greedy.
It's like demanding Austria has to be at the WC as well because they also speak "German" (*cough*) and have great mountains.
One gives you the pinky finger and you take the whole hand.

Congrats for your country bro

What is the style of play and who are the best peruvian players by the way ? I think i am deluded because fast like that i can only remember Pizarro, Vargas & Farfan... all probably in their late 30s by now.

Because you comfortably qualify for everyone of them and the media always puts you as one of the favorites every time (except 2014 and this).

No contest tbh.
At least Jorginho will be Italy starter for years.
Lapadula was uncertain until the very end if Italy and Peru. At the end , after a choice very suffered, chose for Italy because he thought it'd have been better choice for his career.
Peru courted him great for the 100th Copa America , he was very honoured for it.  
His doubts  increased because he feels to he half Peruvian (and indeed he is , his mother is from Peru) . Anyway he desisted.
The moral of story is that Peru will play World Cup now.
He'd have been probably starter there while he will watch Italy NT just on tv in future. Because the hype around him is finished.
It was real sliding door tbh

Besides what m99 mentioned, you have the best league in the world. That alone kicks you out of the underdog category.

Guerrero kicked out of WC due to FIFA finding cocaine traces in him

Cocaine should be allowed for natives of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Venezuela, north-western Brazil and Colombia tbh

It's like banning German players for traces of beer

Don't think alcohol is on the doping list so I don't think so
