Pedro Gallese was one of the figures in Peru’s victory (1-0) over Colombia, for matchday 15 of the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. In fact, the ‘Octopus’ saved the ‘Blanquirroja’ with several interventions. Even, in a play, the goalkeeper prevented what was going to be Luis Abram’s own goal.
At minute 78, Gallese flew to prevent the ball from entering his goal. The action occurred after a header by Abram, who reacted so that the ball did not reach Miguel Borja, who was just behind him, waiting for the opportunity to score.
Peru approaches the World Cup and Colombia is complicated
Thanks to the victory, the cast led by Ricardo Gareca reached 20 points and moved up to fourth place in the table. In this way, in the absence of three days for the end of the contest, the ‘Bicolor’ today would be obtaining a ticket for the next World Cup.
“The figure of the match is the team. What the team scored, what they ran, how they handled the game. Is incredible. I am proud of all my teammates and there is still a long way to go”Gallese said at the end of the match, in an interview with Caracol TV.
