Peru and Australia played a technically weak game, but they saved big feelings for the end. The decision for last place for the 2022 Qatar World Cup was on penalties, after a goalless draw in regulation time, and the hero of the controversy was Andrew Redmayne, who saved two penalties, ensuring the score 5–4, in Doha. , With the result, the Australian team enters Group D of the World Cup along with France, Denmark and Tunisia.
Redmayne entered in the 15th minute of second overtime in place of Matthew Ryan and stole the show not only for a saved penalty but also for the currency in the collection. Redmayne was jumping from side to side of the goal to distract the Peruvians. It worked in two kicks: he defended Adlink’s and Varela’s kicks.
In the previous World Cup, Australia was also in the first leg with France and Denmark, but there was even more competition at that time. After today’s match, the technical disparity between the teams became apparent and the two European teams are expected to stand out in the group.
This was the second time in history that the teams faced each other. The first was precisely at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The Peruvians won the game 2 to 0 valid for the third round of the group stage, goals from Carrillo and Paolo Guerrero.
Australian players have already participated in the 1974, 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018 World Cups and will be participating in the tournament for the sixth time.
