Post.
Australia rightly thank their fans, who were bouyant throughout the match today.
94'
That's it. Both teams are heading home after that results. With the Denmark draw, it would have happened regardless, but it is still disappointing to end like this for the Socceroos. For Peru, they can be very proud of a performance which saw them score 2 goals after having not scored a World Cup goal for 36 years. Both sets of players are disappointed, but both have put in spirited performances at the tournament.
93'
Peru are seeing this out nicely and look to be enjoying their football
90'
Peru with a corner, and they don't even try and waste time but get it in to the box. They really want another

The Peruvians hit the post! A wonderful ball from the right allows Flores to beat the offside trap, and the ball back is truck well by Cueva but hits the bar
78'

Jedinak gives a foul away outside Peru's box. The Socceroos are getting very frustrated now

Jackson Iriving on for Tom Rogic
70'
Australia with a really bright move brought about by Rogic, with Arzani putting an niviting ball in to the box which is just about headed away from danger. Australia really trying now
68'
The ball from Jedink from the right is headed on from Cahill, but a Peruvian defender is there to scramble it away for a corner
66'
Arzani with a great effort on the half voley from 25 yards, but the ball can't dip soon enough to go in to the net.
65'
Mooy with another chance to create something from a free kick, but again the ball isn't good enough and Peru clear their lines
62'
Hurtado repalces the injured Tapia. The Australian faithful are looking more and more dejected now.

Peru strating this half as brightly as they fininshed the last. Australia really need to do something to turn the tide
46'
Aquino replaces Yotun at half time for Peru
46'
The whistle blows on the first half. Australia have certainly had some guilt-edged chances to get back in the game, but the defence of Peru or the lack of finishing ability have got in their way. Peru will be delighted woth the first half display, not only for the goal but for their desire in defence and their growing comepetence in attack. fascinating second half to come
44'
Peru with the corner, they're growing in to this half attackingly as it goes on
43'

Both teams belt out their respective national anthems. Always a sight to behold

Any Australians that are wanting to watch the match at home will need a coffee to stay with the game- it doesn't kick off until midnight over there!
Prev.
Here's you're official confirmation of the lineups, if you didn't believe us the first time!
Prev.
There was much talk ahead of today's game that veteran forward Tim Cahill may get a start in the game, which will be the last for his country at a World Cup. He's not in the starting XI, but he could make an appearance off the bench to bring his vast experience to the Australian front line
Prev.
The Peruvian lineup is: Gallese, Advincula, Ramos, Santamaria, Trauco, Tapia, Yotun, Carillo, Cueva, Flores, Guerrero
Prev.
Here's how the Soceroos lineup today: Ryan, Ridson, Sainsbury, Miligan, Behich, Jedinak, Mooy, Rogic, Leckie, Kruse, Juric
Prev.
Hello and welcome to this Group C match up between Australia and Peru coming from the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi. While Peru are already heading home following this match, there is a slim chance that the Soceroos could make their first World Cup last 16 appaearance in 12 years, should they win today and Denmark lose against France. This is set to be a game where both teams are going to battle to get their first win of the tournament, for pride as much as for progression to the next stage,
