In the midst of strong security measures, the Scottish national team arrived in our country to face the Peruvian team on Tuesday, May 29, in a match that will see off those led by Ricardo Gareca.
Andina News Agency reported that this encounter will take place in the National Stadium of Lima. It will also serve as a new opportunity to improve the strategy that the Peruvian team will use in the Russia World Cup 2018 that starts on June 14.
This will be the third friendly match for the team. The first two took place in the United States against Croatia and Iceland.
“The Scots, who did not qualify for the World Cup, arrived in a small group and with part of their technical team”, Andina wrote, adding that they will be holding their training sessions at the Markham German-Peruvian School.
