PER vs COL: Peru will lock horns with Colombia on Matchday 7 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. The match is scheduled to take place at Estadio Nacional de Lima, Peru.
Peru hasn’t played a game in the last two years. They last matched up against Argentina in the World Cup Qualifiers in November 2020.
Argentina’s Lautaro Martínez screamed one in the 17th minute to make it 1-0. Following that came a goal by Nicolás González to make it 2-0 and thus read the final scoreline.
That loss doesn’t stand close to the cries of Colombia after their tormenting loss in their previous encounter against Ecuador. There were as many as six-goal scorers for Ecuador including three defenders scoring a goal each. Colombia’s Jamez Rodriguez scored a consolation goal in the form of a penalty as they lost 6-1.
Being placed 9th and 7th on the table respectively, Peru and Colombia would be looking to heal their wounds of their previous losses and walk away with a win.
