Peru vs New Zealand: Maltese referees will dispense justice in the friendly match

The Peruvian team continues with its planning for the activity in June, whose main objective will be the playoff for the Qatar 2022 World Cup (against the winner of Australia vs. United Arab Emirates). Before the crucial match, those led by Ricardo Gareca will play a friendly against New Zealand in Spain and the refereeing list of the match was recently revealed.

According to the statement sent by the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF), Maltese Ishmael Barbara (main referee), Roberto Vella (first assistant), Duncan Sultana (second assistant) and Malcolm Spiteri (fourth referee) are in charge of dispensing justice on the preparation commitment that the two casts will hold.

Let’s remember that the Peruvian National Team and New Zealand will meet at the RCDE Stadium in Catalonia (Sunday, June 5, at 10:30 am in Lima), where Espanyol plays the local tournament in that country. For that meeting, Ricardo Gareca will have all of his summons, the same ones that he will announce, this Friday the 20th, at a press conference.

It should be noted that both the ‘Blanquirroja’ and the ‘All Blacks’ already know what it is to face each other, given that they met in the last World Cup repechage in Russia 2018, which allowed those led by the ‘Tiger’ return to a World Cup after a 36-year absence.
