Team news & rosters

Position Peru roster
Goalkeepers Gallese, Carvallo, Caceda
Defenders Advincula, Ramos, Trauco, Corzo, Abram, Trauco, Callens, Lopez, Lora
Midfielders Yotun, Cueva, Carrillo, Tapia, Flores, Gonzales, Pena, Cartagena, Garcia, Costa, Tavara
Forwards Guerrero, Ruidiaz, Lapadula

With no uncapped players in their squad for the September international break, La Blanquirroja know they will have to rely on experience if they are to turn a miserable start in qualification for Qatar around.

Having appeared at their first World Cup since 1982 at Russia 2018 three years ago, a repeat seems unlikely this time around, unless Ricardo Gareca can spin things around drastically.

The inclusion of six novice faces in Oscar Tabarez’s latest squad suggests something of a post-Copa America sea change, where La Celeste fell short on penalties to Colombia.

Veteran talents such as Diego Godin remain in command at the back, however, suggesting that their path to next year’s tournament will be back on course by the end of this month, even without Luis Suarez or Edinson Cavani among their ranks.

Predicted Uruguay starting XI: Muslera; Nandez, Gimenez, Godin, Vina; Valverde, Vecino, Bentancur; De Arrascaeta; J. Rodriguez, Gomez.
