Match Preview:Peru vs Australia


Australia and Peru have never faced each

other in international football before.

Australia face Peru in at the Fisht Olympic

Stadium in Sochi on Tuesday in their final

Group C match.

Peru suffered a second consecutive 1-0

defeat last week, losing to Group C leaders

France.

Australia picked up their first point of the

tournament against Denmark.

For the second match running, captain Mile

Jedinak scored from the penalty spot, this

time to cancel out Christian Eriksen’s early

opener.

Peru will be playing for pride, having already

been eliminated from the tournament.

Australia, meanwhile, still have an outside

chance of qualifying for the last 16.

The Socceroos will have to beat Peru and

hope France win their match against

Denmark. Should that happen, goal

difference will separate the Danes and

Australia.

Should Australia progress, they will face the

winners of Group A, either Croatia or

Nigeria.
