Peru football must improve

Peru football association said that they are looking for ways to improve the level of their football.


The national team is currently ranked 8th in the CONMEBOL ranking for the World Cup qualification, and the federation wants the team to improve.

Indeed the level of Peruvian football has steadily declined in recent years due to poor management of the football federation.

However, there are signs that the national team is recovering with results of the national team improving. They managed to eliminate Brazil at the latest Copa America in the USA, and they have also managed some good results in the World Cup qualification.

In their last game against Argentina, they were unfortunate for not having won the game after twice leading the match. They only managed a draw against one of the better sides in qualification.

But these results have been relatively rare, and the football federation wants to ensure that they get this kind of result on a regular basis. Read More “Peru football must improve”

Philippe Coutinho may get place in National Team

There are some players who knock on the door of the national team and then, there are others who just break open that door. Philippe Coutinho seems to be the one belonging to that second category.

The 22-year old Brazilian midfielder who has not been featuring for his national team in the recent times has now made it difficult for the Selecao boss Dunga to ignore him.

He has been showing a bit of a Midas touch for the Reds in the English first division Football this season.

It’s not only the goals that he has scored. A lot of players actually find the net, but, there are only few who catch the eyes.

Those who tend to score on big occasions are spoken about the most.

In pressure situations with whips cracking, Coutinho has lifted his game and has done the job for Liverpool and perhaps, tried to send a message to Dunga that he is ready for a national recall.

When he was given the opportunity to play International Football for the first time back in 2010, he was only 17 at that time and was just learning his art. He was pretty good though, but, perhaps not good enough for that level. Read More “Philippe Coutinho may get place in National Team”
