This Monday, October 2, 2023, Juan Reynoso revealed in a press conference the list of those called up for the Peruvian team to face the duels against Chile and Argentina for the 2026 Qualifiers. Despite this, many were surprised not to see Christian Cueva and Edison Flores.
The journalists did not hesitate to ask about the absences of two regulars in the ‘blanquirroja’. The ‘Cabezón’ decided not to make any further comments about the footballers who will not be under his mandate.
“I was very clear in saying that I would only talk about those who are there. It is disrespectful to talk about people who are not there, especially when there are players who have earned the right. The selection is not closed at all”
“Throughout the Qualifiers they are going to help us, but we trust in these guys from the local league, more of those who join next weekend will play those from abroad and not get injured,” he stated.
Let us remember that the Peruvian team will play on October 12 against ‘La Roja’ at the Monumental Stadium in Santiago, and on the 17th of the same month against Argentina at the National Stadium in Lima.
