Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Peru and Uruguay square off against each other at Estadio Nacional in what is expected to be an interesting World Cup qualifier. Peru did well to make it to the Copa America semis, but Colombia eventually proved to be a big catch for them in the third place playoffs. La Bicolor have been struggling in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, with the team already suffering four defeats in the process, and, as a result, they are stuck at the bottom of the table.
The good news for the hosts is that both Paolo Guerrero and Raul Ruidiaz return to the squad after missing the Copa America. Uruguay boss Oscar Tabarez, on the other hand, will count on star players Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, and Fede Valverde despite the travel ban from Europe major leagues. Anyhow, beating Peru on the road is easier said than done.
Highlighted Player (Beto da Silva):
Born in Lima, Peru on December 28, 1996, Beto Da Silva is a Peruvian footballer who began his senior career at Sporting Cristal. The pacey attacker scored six goals in 16 appearances in the league for los Celestes and in 2016 he joined Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.
Da Silva signed a two-and-half year deal with PSV and he was immediately sent to Jong PSV. The Brazilian striker scored four goals in 27 appearances in Earste Divisie and on January 6, 2017 he was promoted to the senior team. Da Silva was an unused substitute in a 2-0 victory over Excelsior, but he did not see any game action for the the Boeren in the Eredivisie.
In the winter of 2017 he returned to his boyhood club Gremio, signing a four-year deal with the Brazilian club. Speaking of his international career, Beto da Silva made his Peru debut on May 23, 2016 in a friendly game against Trinidad & Tobago.
Highlighted Team (Uruguay):
La Celeste are one of the most successful South American nations. Uruguay are frequently the champions of the continent having most recently won the tournament in 2011. They have won the Copa America a record 15 times including the first ever edition of the competition in 1916, while the team has also won FIFA World Cup in two occasions including the inaugural competition in 1930 when they defeated Argentina 4-2 in the final as hosts.
Their second World Cup title came in 1950 when Uruguay and Brazil played a legendary match which recorded a higher attendance than any other football match in the history of the game. Uruguay is the smallest country in the world to have won a World Cup by population, but La Celeste are proud of their football heritage which yielded some of the best footballers in the world over the course of history.
Most notable player of the current selection is Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, who is also the team’s top scorer with 45 goals to his name.
