The lineups for the match between Australia and Peru are out. The “socceroos” will try to win against the Peruvian footballers to qualify to the next round.
Australia have never won against a South American country in the history of the World Cups. They lost twice previously and drew once in 3 games. In order to qualify Australia need a win against Peru and then hope that Denmark loses against France. Then, the goal difference will determine which of these teams will qualify. Peru don’t have any chances to qualify in the Round of 16 so they will be free from any pressure.
The socceroos will play with the same 11 as in their first games with the only exception being the forward Juric. He will lead Australia’s attack now instead of Dabbout. Dabbout didn’t use his chances well in the games agains France and Denmark and he lost his place.
On the other side, Peru’s coach Gareca made two changes in his line up compared to the game against France. Renato Tapia will return to the line up after having recovered from his head injury. Anderson Santamaria will start for the first time in this World Cup ahead of the injured Alberto Rodriguez.
Guerrero will lead Peru’s attack with hopes to finally score in the tournament. Peru have been one of the unluckiest teams this year as they have missed too many chances in the previous two games.
Ryan; Risdon, Milligan, Sainsbury, Behich; Jedinak, Mooy, Leckie, Rogic, Kruse, Juric.
Gallese, Advincula, Ramos, Santamaria, Trauco; Tapia, Yotun, Carrillo, Cueva, Flores; Guerrero.
Australia will have to try to score from the start of the game and Peru always play attacking football. This game guarantees goals. If Australia manages to score early they will probably sit back and try to score another from a counter. However, Peru should play without any pressure and try to score as many goals as they can.
