The Australians, who won the World Cup final in a penalty shootout in Qatar on Monday, surprised Peru in a tense goalless draw by changing the goalkeeper to a 5-4 victory after 12 overs. Executioners.
Matthew Ryan, who excelled 0-0 in 30 minutes of play in overtime and overtime, left his post in a seemingly strategic and very dangerous move by Suzuki coach Graham Arnold.
Goalkeepers’ ‘castling’ Andrew Redmine placed between three sticks as Arnold ordered to face a penalty shootout during the match at the Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium in Doha.
The Sydney FC goalkeeper of the Australian A-League revealed a very specific ‘show’ with a dance before his rivals executed his shot.
When the series was 4-4, the victim on the twelfth pitch became Alex Valera.
Redmine, who turned 33 on Jan. 13, appeared to be intimidating the young and inexperienced Deportivo Laguabamba player, who was too easy for Redmine to fly and was shot by telegraph in the left post.
Just as the Australian goalkeeper arrived in the final minutes of the crucial play-off match, Peru coach Ricardo Carreca said Valera was one of the last to be called up to face the game.
With the win, Australia qualified for the sixth World Cup in its history, 1,671 days ago 36 years after Russia’s victory in the playoffs in 2018, the Peruvians followed suit.
