The Argentine media have found “curious” and “peculiar” the next rival of the peruvian team. In the Albiceleste country it has been surprising that Ricardo Gareca’s team faces the foreigners team of the League 1. Likewise, they also highlighted that the game will help to gain rhythm in the face of the transcendental double date of the Qualifying Qatar 2022 which will be played at the end of January and the beginning of February.
“And just as he had planned to play against Panama and Jamaica a few days before facing Colombia, in a true final that could begin to define things for the closing of qualifying for the next World Cup, it was confirmed that he will have another rival. Before taking on the Concacaf teams -he plays with Panama on Sunday 16 and on Thursday 20 with Jamaica-, the team led by Ricardo Gareca announced that it will face a team of foreigners who play in the Peruvian League 1. In other words, he will face footballers who play in the country every weekend “, said the newspaper Olé in its web edition.
For its part, TyC Sports in its web version indicated the following: “En the previous one to the crosses against the rivals of the Concacaf, Panama and Jamaica, the next 16 and 20 of the current month, the selected one that is fifth with 17 points, in Repechage position, programmed another friendly to arrive well trodden to the crossing of the January 28 against the coffee growers, fourth with the same units as their rival and, for now, qualify directly … The rivals? No selection. It will be a combination of foreign footballers who play in the First Division of Peru ”.
As recalled, the Peruvian team will have three preparation games for the next double date of the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. Those led by Gareca will play against the foreign team of League 1 on Wednesday, January 12. Then they will hold friendlies against Panama (January 16) and Jamaica (January 20).
All this with a view to the matches against Colombia (January 28) and Ecuador (February 1). As it is recalled, the ‘Blanquirroja’ marches in fifth place with 17 units, the same score as Colombia (4th) but with a worse goal difference.
It should be noted that the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualify the first four of the Conmebol Qualifiers. Likewise, the fifth place must play a repechage match.
