The Peruvian team achieved a great triumph over Venezuela as a visitor, which is fully involved in the fight to qualify for the Qatar World Cup 2022. The result generated great joy in the footballers, who did not hesitate to celebrate in the play field.
Christian Cueva’s goal had put the advantage again for the Peruvian team, but it was not enough for the last minutes, in which they had to suffer. The ‘Vinotinto’ attacked with everything and generated several dangerous occasions, which Pedro Gallese and his defense managed to control effectively.
After a long time of tension, the Brazilian referee Bruno Arleu whistled the end of the match, unleashing the great satisfaction of the ‘Blanquirroja’. All the players, both those who had been active and those who were on the substitute bench, took off towards the same point to join in a fraternal embrace.
Ricardo Gareca’s technical command also expressed his joy, especially the ‘Tigre’: he congratulated one of his assistants. The effusiveness was also slowed down at times, since Yoshimar Yotún and some other athletes approached the Venezuelan squad to greet them for the good duel they starred in.
Waiting for Colombia vs. Paraguay and Chile vs. Ecuador, the Peruvian team for now is placed in fourth place with 17 points, being a direct classification zone. In the worst case, he could finish in the sixth box, but pending to reach one of the places to enter the World Cup.
