It is quite normal that coaches make some adjustments when there is an important player missing. Such is the case of Peru. During their second training session in Auckland, two players were seen wearing the legendary number “9” jersey which is usually worn by Paolo Guerrero.
During a recent interview with Edinson Flores, he shed some light regarding these two players.
The first player sporting the number 9 jersey was Jefferson (Farfán) and during the second time both, Jefferson and Raúl Ruidíaz, wore it.
Flores also stated that Peru’s Coach Gareca will not decide who will play until the very end.
Edinson also shared some information regarding climatic conditions which many enthusiasts believe can play against the team which is not used to playing in cold places. Edinson stated, “it is much colder but the team is doing well and we all know these are the most important matches in our lives”.
Lastly, Edinson mentioned that the team trusts Gareca completely and that they will play according to what he plans.
