Summary here at Latestly.

The South American outfit have even come up against strong opposition such as Croatia and Iceland and still been victorious, so Ricardo Gareca will be confident his side can string a shock or two in Russian Federation.

"I remember this year at Stamford Bridge we were dominating and winning the game against Spurs and then all of a sudden he scored a fantastic goal".

Peru's build up to the tournament was overshadowed by the controversy over Paolo Guerrero's selection.

The Spurs talisman will also be playing in his second World Cup finals after featuring eight years ago in South Africa for his homeland.

After the World Cup´s first ever VAR penalty was given for France in their 2-1 win over Australia earlier Saturday, Peru got one in the third game of the day, but wasted it horribly.

Watford's Andre Carrillo and Lokomotiv Moscow's Jefferson Farfan have been picked to spearhead the attack.

"In 2010 we had experience, but also many injuries, including myself".

Any victory in the World Cup is vital as there is only a maximum of nine points to be won, but the performances of the Socceroos and Peru have far from dented their hopes of reaching the knockout stages. But Peru did not lose any support, if anything this courageous group of players and lovable nation gained even more admirers. The players have already shown through qualifying that they can handle everything from the altitude of the Andean mountains to the heat of the Amazon jungle.

Denmark made them pay two minutes later on the counter-attack as Eriksen laid the ball of for Poulsen to finish inside the near post.

Information from Reuters was used in this report.

On that occasion, Eriksen was the star of the show, bagging a hat-trick as the team secured a place in Russian Federation. Denmark boast an impressive backline that features Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen, who has benched Brazil global David Luiz for the Blues, captain Simon Kjaer known for his remarkable reading of the game, and Leicester shot-stopper Kasper Schemeichel who managed eight clean sheets for the Foxes last season.

Celta Vigo's Pione Sisto is another ace up Hareide's sleeve.

Captain Simon Kjaer was a rock at the back, making a number of key interventions to keep Peru at bay, and Andreas Christensen alongside him maintained his excellent form in breaking into the starting XI at Chelsea this past season.

In goal is Kasper Schmeichel, the son of Manchester United great Peter Schmeichel.

Braithwaite, who was loaned out to French club Bordeaux after an underwhelming start to his career in English football with Middlesborough, conceded he didn't know much about the Australian team.
