Speaking to Peru’s reporters, Gareca defended his team and stated his men are capable of defeating any squad in the world because “we have the players to do it.” Due to the key absences Peru will have when they face Uruguay, the young, multifaceted player Ádan Balbín could be one of the surprise additions to the pitch after practicing with the squad over the weekend.
