The time has finally arrived for Peru's national soccer team to face New Zealand at the second Russia 2018 qualifying playoff match hoping to return to a World Cup tournament after 36 years.
The decisive game will be held this Wednesday at Lima's National Stadium at 9:15 PM (local time).
As is known, Peru and New Zealand saw a 0-0 draw in Wellington last Saturday.
Thus, Peru will seek the victory tonight, as this game's winner will secure a spot at the 2018 World Cup.
Coached by Argentinean Ricardo Gareca, the red-white returned to its homeland from New Zealand on Saturday 11 at 06:15 PM (local time).
On its part, Anthony Hudson's squad arrived in Lima last Monday at dawn.
Since then, both teams held training sessions at Lima-based National Sports Village (Videna) and local Markham College facilities, respectively.
The last training day took place at the National Stadium, where athletes were able to reinforce strategies on the field.
In case the Inca team manages to defeat New Zealand in the final match, Peru will get tickets to the 2018 World Cup.
It must be noted the Peruvian Government will declare November 16th a national non-working day if the soccer team reaches the long-awaited qualification.
