Winning Trumps Warm Feelings for Denmark, Peru’s Edison Flores Says

MOSCOW – Peruvian national team player Edison “Oreja” Flores said on Tuesday that winning the World Cup trumped his warm feelings toward Denmark, where he plays for Aalborg.

“In Denmark, they treat me really great, but I want to beat them. That’s what I want. If I get to score a goal, I’m going to scream really loud so that all of Peru can hear me,” the 24-year-old midfielder said.

Peru, which is in Group C along with Denmark, France and Australia, is making its return to the World Cup after a 36-year absence.

Flores, one of the question marks in coach Ricardo Gareca’s starting line-up against Denmark next Saturday, said his teammates were extremely motivated to win.

“It’s a solid group, with a good atmosphere,” the 24-year-old Flores said.

Yoshimar Yotun, a left winger converted into a midfielder, said that there were always “nerves and anxiety at the first World Cup.”

“Sometimes we look around the table and remember that we’re at the World Cup. To get over it, we try not to think only about the match,” the 28-year-old Yotun said.

Yotun, who played in the Swedish league before joining Major League Soccer (MLS) club Orlando City, said Denmark was a team that wanted to reach the goal “with as few touches as possibles.”

Both Flores and Yotun had nothing but kind words for team captain Paolo Guerrero, saying that the striker was a “comrade and friend to all.”

Guerrero’s 14-month ban due to a doping violation was suspended by the Swiss Federal Supreme Court last month, allowing him to join the national team for the World Cup.

“We made a promise that we would go to the World Cup with him and we’re very happy that he’s at the World Cup,” Flores said, while Yotun added that Guerrero was a “key piece that always gives his best.”
