Perú team profile: 2019 Copa América key players, roster, coach, fixtures

May 30, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
La Franjirroja will have to battle Brazil, Venezuela and Bolivia in Group A. Let's have a deeper look into their squad and chances of making it in the tournament.

What is Perú's Copa América record?

The Peruvian National Team has been present in 31 of the 45 previous Copa América editions. La Franjirroja managed to win the tournaments held in 1939 and 1975, and even if it's been a long time since their last title, two of their last three outings in this competitions have ended with Gareca's men earning the bronze medal (2011 in Argentina and 2015 in Chile). Gareca's side succumbed to Colombia in an excruciating quarterfinal clash in the 2016 Copa América.

What is Perú's roster for the 2019 Copa América?

"These are the 23 men that will play for the Peruvian National Team in the 2019 Copa América."

Who are Perú's key players for the 2019 Copa América?

Paolo Guerrero – The team's all-time top scorer returns after his undeserved doping ban. At 35, we could be watching Guerrero's last international games, which means that every moment he spends on the pitch should be closely watched by fans around the world, especially when he makes his way into the opponent's box.

Jefferson Farfán – Guerrero's long-time sidekick gets to this tournament after leading Lokomotiv to the Russian Premier League's second place. Farfán is no longer a kid, which means that his speed is almost gone. Nevertheless, his intelligence and his everlasting partnership with Guerrero will be crucial for Perú's hopes for success.

Christian Cueva – Cueva seems to be destined to become Peru's reference in the near future, which is confirmed by his role with Santos in Brazil. The 27-year-old midfielder has proven to be quite useful for Ricardo Gareca, and his playmaking skills will come in handy for Gareca's men to reach the next stage and beyond.

Who is Perú's coach?

Ricardo Gareca – "El Tigre" is one of the most praised men by Perú's fans. He has been in charge of the team's tactics since 2015, and leading Perú to a FIFA World Cup after a 36-year absence has secured his spot in the team's history. He managed Perú to the third place in the 2015 Copa América. Will he be able to lead them to the title this time?

When will Perú play in the 2019 Copa América?

La Franjirroja will face Brazil, Venezuela, and Bolivia in the group stage. These will be their games during the tournament in chronological order:
