Paolo Guerrero on Oliver Sonne: “The only thing that is asked of him is that he sweat his shirt” | VIDEO

The incorporation of Oliver Sonne to the Peruvian team is “important,” Paolo Guerrero said this Monday on the eve of the Bicolor’s visit to Chile for the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers, after training for the second time with the new member of the ‘everyone’s team’. ‘ in Videna.

“He is a player who is still adapting to the group, he is a little quiet because he doesn’t speak Spanish very well, I have had few moments to talk with him, I don’t speak English that well, but well I will communicate with him something, especially so that he feels calm, comfortable with the group,” he responded about the defender born in Denmark, to whom he left a message at a press conference.

“The only thing that is asked of him is that he sweat his shirt, we will surely talk about it,” added the Blanquirroja captain.

Paolo Guerrero leads Peru’s final squad for the Qualifiers matches against Chile and Argentina, which includes the surprising return of attacker Santiago Ormeño, as well as the confirmation of Franco Zanelatto and Oliver Sonne.

The most notable absences in a list of 31 players released this Monday on their social networks by the Bicolor are Gianluca Lapadula, still in the process of recovering from an injury, and Christian Cueva and Edison Flores, in both cases due to a technical decision.

In this way, Juan Reynoso ratified confidence in the leadership of Guerrero, who has just qualified for the final of the Copa Sudamericana with the LDU of Ecuador, and surprised with the return of the Peruvian-Mexican Ormeño, who is considered for the first time in the current elimination process.

In addition, he confirmed the presence of the young Peruvian-Paraguayan forward Zanelatto and the Peruvian-Danish Sonne, who have joined the national team amid great expectation from the local media and fans.

Sonne, 22, caused a stir when he arrived in Lima last Saturday and immediately joined the Bicolor rally, after having completed the procedures to receive his DNI for being the grandson of a Peruvian citizen.

Reynoso’s call maintains the backbone of Peru in the last two qualifying processes, with Pedro Gallese almost as an immovable starter in goal, and the return in defense of the experienced Anderson Santamaría and Alexander Callens, as well as the entry of the young Jhilmar Lora.

Containment Pedro Aquino will also return in the middle sector and the young creatives Piero Quispe and Jairo Concha will remain, while in attack doubts were cleared up about the presence of André Carrillo, who has recovered from an injury, and Fabrizio joins Roca and Joao Grimaldo, the current great promise in the national offensive.

Peru, which drew 0-0 with Paraguay and lost 0-1 against Brazil in the first double day of the qualifiers, will face Chile this Thursday in Santiago and next Tuesday it will host Argentina at the National Stadium.
