And Peru has succeeded, all the participants of the World Cup 2018 and the distribution of urns are already clear
Peru beat 2-0 New Zealand and became the last team to play the World Cup 2018. Jefferson Farfan and Christian Ramos scored the Incas hits that won the second intercontinental playoff and completed the list of finalists of the championship in Russia.
The first match ended 5 days ago 0: 0, but today the South Americans scored one goal in each half and brought to the delirium the crowd of crowded Estadio Nacional in Lima. For Peru this will be the 5th World Championship. The previous ones were in 1930, 1970, 1978 and 1982. The first victory of the team of the biggest football forum is against Bulgaria – 3: 2 in 1970.
Prior to qualifying, most specialists did not put the Peruvians in the bills. Ricardo Garrett’s team, however, has mistaken some of the favorites and reached the playoffs at the expense of the champion of the last edition of Copa America – Chile. New Zealand did not hinder the hosts and did not show that it deserved a place among the 32nd best teams in the world. The visitors were defending and Kosta Barbarauses did not reach any passes.
In Peru, there were three changes from the first match, with Andre Carrio, Yosimar Yotun and Aldo Corso out of the stakes at the expense of Andy Polo, Raul Ruidias and Luis Aviscula. New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson made two rocadas in his team. Veteran Andrew Davis replaced injury defender Tommy Smith and Marko Rokas was sent to the reserve and Billy Tuiloma started his first minute for the champion of Oceania. The striker of Burnley Chris Wood appeared only at the start of the second half.
Avincula failed to give Peru an advance in the 3 rd minute with a long shot, but the pressure of the hosts continued and in the middle of the half-century the fortress of the New Zealanders fell. Cristian Queva handled the guest captain Winston Reid and found the uncovered Pharphane. There was a powerful jump below the beam of Lokomotiv’s wing (Moscow) and the stadium was on its feet.
After defeating his 23rd national team, Farfan showed a 9th shirt, dedicating doping penalties Jose Paolo Guerrero.
By the end of the halftime, Peruvians could score a second goal, but New Zealand goalkeeper Stephan Marinovic corrected his mistake after Miguel Traucco struck ahead of Farfan.
After the appearance of Chris Wood, there was a short period of time in which the guests became active but they did not create a pure goal position. the hopes of the “kiwi” finally vanished in the 65th minute when after a corner kick, the ball was not clear and Ramos sent it to the final 2: 0.
In this way Peru was ranked in world finals for the first time in 36 years and the holiday in the country could begin. After the fight in Lima, it was finally clear that the 32nd finalist was on the ball. For the first time in history, it was based on the FIFA rankings, with the only exception being for host Russia.
Apart from the Russians, Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Belgium, Poland and France will be among the group leaders. Interestingly, Spain will be in second as well as England.
The draw for the eight groups will be drawn on December 1 in the Kremlin.
