Group A: Peru v Uruguay

Peru v Uruguay


Date: 26.06.07
Time: 18.05(local time)
Venue: Mérida
Referee:Carlos AMARILLA (PAR)


The 2007 Copa America opens in Merida as Uruguay play Peru, in an intriguing clash that will provide an insight into some of the strengths and weaknesses of Group A.

Peru travel to Venezuela with criticism ringing in collective ears, following indifferent preparation for the tournament, but it is coach Julio Caesar Uribe's that will be burning brightest.

The 3-3-2-2 he has employed most often has not sat well with the Peru faithful and, it is a narrow formation which, somewhat predictably, has manifest criticism from Newcastle wide man Nolberto Solano - a high profile absentee.

Peru can, though, call on Chelsea new boy Claudio Pizarro (pictured) and all eyes at Stamford Bridge will be on the bustling forward, as they look to garner more information on their acquisition from Bayern Munich.

Alongside Pizarro will be the pacey presence of Jefferson Farfan and following what was a hugely impressive campaign with Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven, he too will be confident of posing problems in Venezuela.

Peru have tasted Copa America glory back in 1939 and 1975 and while they are unlikely to complete a hat-trick in 2007, they could yet pose the odd problem for some of this year's more fancied contenders.

Perennial dark horses Uruguay commence the tournament without their talisman Alvaro Recoba, courtesy of a thigh injury that is threatening to derail his country's chances of glory.

The extent of the injury has yet to be ascertained, but what is clear is that Fabian Estoyanoff will step-in as his replacement for the Peru clash.

At the other end of the field, Diego Lugano finished Uruguay's last training session with ice strapped around his knee, but it is thought such action was precautionary and he is expected to start.

Diego Forlan has rued Recoba's absence in the local press but with clubs across Europe, and in particular the Premier League, watching the former Manchester United misfit, it will be on the Villarreal hit-man's shoulders that the goalscoring burden rests.

This game will be all about Jefferson Farfan, if he's on his game I think they can upset Uruguay.

All 3 strikers for Peru are fantastic
Its just a matter of whether they will get their act together in time, since when they play together with Peru little or nothing has come out of this trio.

I expect the Uruguayan organization, balls and skill in Forlan to be enough for Uruguay to edge a narrow victory this time around. 2-1

Estoyanoff can surely replace Recoba if he wakes up on the right side.

Great player with superb crosses at times and good dribbling moves while he's pretty pacey and has a good vision of the game. Canobbio is another great player IMO, he's a bit too unpolished and can easily pick up a red card without a reason.

I hope we'll see some pretty organized football tonight.

If Peru stops making their atrocious defensive errors, they might be able to win.

Forza Uruguay! Forza Lugano!

Is it true that if you don't use it, you lose it?

Uruguay kommer antagligen att vinna ändå, så oroar mig för det gör jag inte. Jag gillar underdogs och nej, har inte Peruanskt blod eller vänner som har Peruanskt blod.

Sorry for the Swedish
