Peru’s loss is Argentina’s gain
Any chance that Peru had of beating Argentina went out the window when Farfan was declared out of the Copa America after getting injured against Bolivia. He was subbed during halftime of the game and left in an ambulance although the injury wasn’t all that serious, but unfortunately serious enough to keep him out of the remainder of the tournament.
The PSV Eindhoven striker had been the best player for Peru with the possible exception of Juan Carlos Mariño. Without Jefferson Farfan in the lineup Peru will most likely rely on set pieces and a continued resurgance of Pizarro to score on Argentina and Abbondanzieri.
Good luck Peru. You’ll need plenty of it.
