The six pipes: 1) left foot from Ávalos; 2) and 3) Diego Gómez’s corner hit the post, rebounded, Gustavo Gómez’s half chilena/chalaca hit the crossbar; 4) free kick by Diego Gómez to the crossbar; 5) and 6) right foot from Romero Gamarra to the post, it fell to Carlos González, left foot and stuck again.
Now, what raises the point in the category of a highlight is the situation: going to Paraguay without six starters (Lapadula, Cueva, Aquino, Callens, Zambrano, Édison Flores), playing for a while with ten men, there are ninety-five minutes. and the addition of the table is also celebrated, of course. And the technician was exonerated. But football-wise there is nothing left. And this is an important topic: to play well tomorrow it is necessary to show something today. Because you need to be different: one thing is to protect yourself in possession of the ball, another is to bind your opponent close to the area without allowing them to create scoring situations, and another is to be overwhelmed by the ends, creating twelve dangerous games. and save your chances, clubs and your archer. If your goalkeeper saves you it’s his own merit, don’t let the sticks save you. And the crosses and hot flashes did not count, only those that went to the goal.
Gareca had five or six players who were fouled, but they never played like that, he mentioned the games in the middle. He filled the line with flyers and prevented them from reaching him. And he maintained a line in the game, without losing the vertical.

DT SURVEY: “Reynoso covered our mouths in the draw”, but “against Brazil he has the obligation to try more”: The challenge of Peru and how to increase the score against Scratch
Talking about 4-3-1-2 or any other tactical drawing makes no sense if the method is not favorable, it is more inclined. In addition, the journalist must have a more cosmic vision, comment on the scene, what is happening, not too deep in tactical speculations. That is the role of Reynoso and Barros Schelotto. They design the strategy, we analyze their teams according to their performance.
The young left forward Ramón Sosa (Talleres de Córdoba will take many millions for him) drove Advíncula crazy on the left and Micky Almirón went past Trauco on the right. That and the centers, where the Paraguayans were afraid, created a gap. And the Paraguayan midfielder dominates the sector, anticipates and often wins the ball, especially the splits. The delay in Peru also made it easier for two people with great character to go forward in every development, with Gustavo Gómez and Fermín Balbuena, the two center-backs, which was very difficult. to prevent. And all this added up to fill the field against the Welsh. Paraguay, it must be emphasized, poured on the pitch a great desire to start winning and did everything for it, except the goal. It was his fault. But it has an unbearable intensity at times. La Albirroja is like Johan Cruyff’s Clockwork Orange, attacking through air, sea and land. Let’s see how Paraguay compares to other opponents.
Gallese’s amazing performance may still surprise some, but in 2015, when he revealed himself at the Copa América in Chile, it was clear that he would be a goalkeeper for ten or twelve years for the national that team. We have never seen a Peruvian goalkeeper at this level. With respect to the previous ones, not even close to it. Through anger, the conditions and the performance. Pedro’s cat reflexes are comparable to Fillol or Casillas. They can hit a header from a meter away, reach and get the ball. In addition, there is always a high morale to send to colleagues. When the player on the field sees his goalkeeper take everything, he is filled with confidence. The point came from the suitcase of the Orlando City goalkeeper. By the way: We’ve heard MLS is a funny league. Two of the figures of the night from MLS: Gallese and the Paraguayan Diego Gómez.
One is an event, it is said, the other star is Yotún. If he is physically fit, he is class A in handling and distributing the ball, never fainting or getting angry in any situation. He commands, clears the game and is a good passer. Hope the Gallese and Yotún are not cold…! And there is the worker who never gives up: Renato Tapia.
In contrast, Canchita Gonzáles (left) and André Carrillo are very weak. Slow Paolo Guerrero. He sent a shot to the crossbar because he was far from the area, unmarked, in one-on-one it was difficult for him because he lost speed. It is difficult to play for a 9 who is almost 40 years old to go and fight in the area with two animals like Balbuena and Gustavo Gómez. And Advíncula can’t beat Sosa. He stopped him bravely. That the first time he was warned, but the second time he didn’t… He was completely fired.
Well done Reynoso for rearming the defense in the second half. He took Trauco, which is a freeway, he brought two full-backs better (Corzo and López), from Araujo, who made water in the centers, and also from Carrillo and Gonzáles. The technician read it correctly. It’s not minor, there are coaches who don’t make changes well and instead of improving, they get worse. Now, don’t forget the fact that football has two sides, attack and defense. You cannot qualify by defending 18 games. And when you should go to the front…? Shall we give Paolo Guerrero a shotgun and let him go…? Brazil, without Vinicius, Antony and Paquetá, sent Rodrygo, Raphinha, Neymar and Richarlison to the field. And he has Gabriel Jesús and Gabriel Martinelli, both from Arsenal, left in the room.
With the point in your pocket everything changes perspective. But be careful, the point is valid on the outside if it wins on the inside. And the seven absentees will remain absent on Tuesday. Brazil arrived with an interim coach. And when I travel without a coach it’s the same, it’s always Brazil. Let Bolivia say it…
There are people who love the board, others the game. For the first, Peru is now one of the six qualified.
