Peru Too Strong for Chile in Friendly Football Match
Peru’s football team beat Chile last week, with 3-0 in a friendly match. Even though the match was held in the American city of Miami, there were many supporters from both countries present to cheer up their national team.
The first half saw chances for both teams. The Peruvians did have the upper hand though, as the best chances came from the national squad of the old Inca country. To wit, in the 31st minute when the Peruvian player Raul Ruidiaz barely missed the goal when he shot against a Chilean defender located near the goal.
However, the first half did not see any goals. Both teams did have their chances, but no one finished them.
Fortunately, this was about to change in the second half of the game. Peru started playing more opportunistic and thus created more chances. This paid off in the 63rd minute of the match after a cross pass of Andre Carrillo got into the box. The Chilean defense failed to get the ball away. Instead, the Chilean defender Enzo Roco got the ball into their own goal and made the 1-0.
Shortly after, the Peruvian midfielder Pedro Aquino scored a goal, after Edison Flores gave him the assist. Just before time, in the 86th minute, Aquino hit the net for yet another time. With the most beautiful goal of the evening, he shot the ball into the goal after a rapid breakthrough. Last week was the first time Peru wins against Chile since the year 2013.
