The peruvian national team fell to Australia on penalties and failed to qualify for World Cup Qatar 2022. In the previous one, the team led by Ricardo Gareca He arrived with a good record against the Socceroos, who based on defensive order managed to neutralize the red and white player.
In the analysis carried out by Martin Libermanthe Peruvian team was unknown: “Peru cannot complain about anything because they had a stable squad. Peru was not up to the task in terms of their game possibilities, being somewhat tied up against a rival who knew where they had to play their game”.
“The Aussies knew they were inferior and they played a match cutting circuits. Peru is more than what we saw, but the responsibility and weight of the game makes you play the way they played. Penalties are a lottery that has work behind it”Liberman added on his YouTube channel.
Questioning the goalkeeper
Andrew Redmayne was the goalkeeper who entered the second overtime, a strategy used by the Australian coach with the aim of winning the penalty shootout. Andrew caused surprise by making many movements, which generated controversy because for many he gained a few centimeters of advantage.
Liberman was one of his critics: “The goalkeeper was dancing on the line. I don’t want to take credit away from him but it seems to me that football has nothing to do with this, I don’t understand the rule that the goalkeeper can do anything while he is on the line. But I insist that he did not do anything that was not regulation. He gained some distance in the Advíncula penalty that had to be repeated”.
