Have you heard the one about the gunslinger, the assassin and the predator? Football fans in Salvador attending the Copa America quarter-final between Uruguay and Peru soon will because that's what's in store for them on Saturday.
Captain Paolo Guerrero and forward Jefferson Farfan each scored one and created another as Peru took a huge step towards qualifying for the Copa America quarter-finals with a 3-1 Group A victory over Bolivia on Tuesday.
VAR was in the action for the first game. The referee gave a penalty to Bolivia initially before changing it to a free-kick outside the box. The VAR then told the referee to give a penalty against Peru. On the stroke of half-time, Guerrero finished off a great pass over the defenders to make it 1-1 in Maracana.
Peru striker Paolo Guerrero will have to serve the remainder of a doping ban which was lifted for the World Cup, meaning the 34-year-old won't be able to play again this year, Brazilian media reported Thursday.Â
Talking to the press after his side lost to France, Peru captain Paolo Guerrero said he was happy with the football his nation had demonstrated in Russia, despite the fact that they are now eliminated.
