Liverpool vs. Brighton

Liverpool travelled to Falmer Stadium on Saturday to play Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Peruvians showcased their football skills: keeping the ball 60% of the time, not allowing a shot on goal, and constantly pressuring their opponents to give up the ball. This professional artistry has led Peru to be ranked 10th in the world(BBC). The 2-0 victory over New Zealand gives Peru’s team the last “golden ticket”, a chance to play in the World Cup competition in Russia next summer. It is the first time in 35 years that Peru will be playing on the world stage.
