Although a few days have passed, the world of football continues to talk about the fall of the peruvian national team against Australia for the playoff World Cup Qatar 2022. Recently Sergio Markarianformer DT of the ‘Bicolor’, spoke about it.

“Previously I saw a very marked enthusiasm in the sports fans, in the journalistic media, in the players themselves, it seemed to me that they were very confident and there was talk of an eventual Peruvian supremacy. I don’t know much about the power of Australia, but it seemed good to me that there was confidence. Today the comments are somewhat negative in the sense that Australia had been underestimated or thought to be less than it was. That hurt a lot,” he began by saying.

On the other hand, the ‘Wizard’ stated that this “litter” is the best that Peru has had in recent decades. “It is the best generation of Peruvian soccer in many decades. At least it is the best in the last two or three decades”, he pointed out.

In 1997 I left Sporting Cristal, after the Copa Libertadores where we played the final with Cruzeiro and at that time I said that I saw the lack of training and the absence of important competition at the youth level as a defect. therefore, the difficulty of training players. I made the same comment when I left the national team a few years ago, but I had the peace of mind of having worked hard in training. Now I don’t see that there is a generation that will replace him, they are more or less the same players that started with me”, he specified.

Finally, the Uruguayan referred to what happened with Luis Advíncula, who initially resigned from the Peruvian team through social networks and then deleted his message. “Personally, I was moved by Advíncula. Being a stronghold and important player in the team. Perhaps one of the best right-backs in South America, he had the misfortune to miss the penalty and take responsibility for the way it was done. They are football things, ”he pointed out.
