Peru Defeats New Zealand 2-0 to Clinch Last Remaining Place in World Cup

LIMA – Peru’s national team took the last remaining place for the 2018 Soccer World Cup in Russia by beating New Zealand 2-0 in the second leg of the intercontinental playoff with goals from striker Jefferson Farfan and center-back Christian Ramos.

The Peruvian team, better known as La Blanquirroja, had to score a win after a goalless draw in the first leg in New Zealand, and after 36 years will return to play in a World Cup; the last time they played was in Spain in 1982.

The “Kiwis” tried to put up a close defense, but in the 28th minute the Peruvians took advantage of one of the few occasions that their rivals left to take the lead.

The National Stadium in Lima erupted with joy when Farfan mercilessly shot past the New Zealand goalkeeper, completing a counterattack led by midfielder Christian Cueva.

The Peruvians’ second goal came in the middle of the second half, with a shot by Ramos from a corner kick.

The Peruvian team will play the fifth World Cup in its history, after having participated previously in Uruguay 1930, Mexico 1970, Argentina 1978 and Spain 1982.
