Mordovia Arena – Saransk – Russia
Two of the Socceroo’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Group C opponents, surprise South American qualifiers, Peru, and the unfashionable Scandinavian team Denmark, meet in the Mordovia Arena in Saransk, Russia.
The two sides have not met before in a full international.
Peru’s high FIFA World Ranking of 12 has been inflated by playing a lot at home and rarely travelling outside South America for matches. Winning away from their Lima home is rare, as evidenced by the 0-0 draw in qualifying against New Zealand. Two home wins were welcome against fellow World Cup qualifiers against Iceland and Croatia, but again, playing in Lima is hardly good preparation for playing in Russian conditions. Homesickness may be Peru’s worst enemy.
Is it possible that Denmark may suffer from being one-dimensional? Striker Christian Eriksen reached star status in qualifying, scoring 11 goals in 12 matches. “The World Cup deserves a star like him,” says coach, Age Hareide. “We will be a danger to all teams because of him.” he added. The coach may be right and if fit, Eriksen will provide plenty of headaches for the Peruvian defenders.
