Ricardo Gareca, technician of the peruvian national team, spoke after the historic 1-0 victory over Colombia in Barranquilla. The Argentine coach was excited about the match and thanked the people who always trusted the ‘red and white‘ and those who attended the Metropolitan Stadium. The strategist became the first coach to win three consecutive games in South American Qualifiers.

“Winning here is very difficult, but I have to review, we have won in very complicated scenarios and in very complicated moments for us. I highlight these guys because we went through very difficult times and today we are in a position. We know that this isn’t over, it’s just coming back and continuing, resting and trying to blend into the next match. It was a very tough year. It is very difficult to tell you if this is the most important victory. I value it a lot, Colombia is a great team”, commented the DT.

Let’s remember that this is a historic victory that breaks two records in Peruvian soccer in South American Qualifiers, given that it is the first time that the ‘red and white’ has won two consecutive away victories: 2-1 against Venezuela in Caracas and 1-0 against Colombia in Barranquilla. The second is that they achieved three consecutive victories: 3-0 against Bolivia and the last two matches.

On the other hand, the ‘bicolor’ did not beat Colombia as a visitor 23 years ago, when ‘Chino’ Pereda won 1-0 in 1987. In addition, in the last games we were defeated 3-0 in the Qualifiers against Qatar and 3-2 in the Copa América Brazil 2021.

“We played with a team that was in need, that has great players. Both teams need to win to position. We were patient, of course we would have liked to have had more offensive opportunities, but it was a game that had to be worked on. Colombia prevented most of the attacks. It was necessary to defend well and reduce the attacks of the Colombians to avoid the one-on-one with Pedro Gallese”, expressed the Argentine from the Metropolitan Stadium in Barranquilla.
