World Cup Group C match report Australia v Peru 26 June 2018

Austrlia vs Peru

The Australians had to beat Peru and hope Denmark lost to France in the other Group C match, but neither result occurred.

Australia will end the 2018 World Cup as arguably the limpest attacking team as far as product goes.

The Socceroos' fate may be out of their hands - and goal difference may ultimately deny them - but Van Marwijk is convinced that the seas will part for them.

Hired only for the World Cup and with his successor Graham Arnold already anointed, Van Marwijk was tasked with a rush-job for Russian Federation, given a handful of games to mould a modestly-resourced team into a competitive unit.

He scored against New Zealand in the qualification play-off for the World Cup to help Los Incas to their first appearance at the finals since 1982. The captain, Guerrero, chased down a long ball and crossed for Carrillo, arriving in the penalty area, to score with a fine right-footed volley beyond Mat Ryan.

As the minutes ticked away so too did Australia's hopes of a turnaround; Aziz Behich got in behind the Peru defence and had time and space to pick his spot but instead opted to send a cross beyond the unmarked Cahill.

Australia leaves consoled by decent performances even though it didn't get the points to show for it.

A training ground collision left Jefferson Farfan temporarily paralysed with the Peruvian attacker now a confirmed absentee for his side's final World Cup clash against Australia. It played relatively well in the opener against the French and had chances to get more than a draw against Denmark.

Peru may have won plenty of fans in their first World Cup in 36 years, but the South American side are heading home at the group stages following narrow 1-0 defeats to Denmark and France. It's last World Cup victory was a 4-1 result against Iran in the first round of the 1978 tournament in Argentina.

The 34-year-old was set to miss the World Cup having been given a 14-month ban after testing positive for a cocaine by-product contained in a tea.

Experienced striker Guerrero, who was only allowed to play in the tournament after the captains of Peru's World Cup opponents petitioned Federation Internationale de Football Association to temporarily lift his suspension, made the most of what may have been his final appearance for Los Incas, who finished with three points to add to the many plaudits they have won in Russia.
