Tournament: FIFA World Cup, group C, 1st round
Peru (the head coach Ricardo Gareca)
According to the results of multistage qualification campaign the subdivision into five Confederations of 32 berths of the participants of the forthcoming Russian FIFA World Cup is as follows:
Europe – 14, South America – 5, Africa – 5, North and Central America – 4, Asia – 4;
Traditionally representatives of KONMEBOL (South America) on World championships are Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. Other national teams of the South American football come to the final World Cup tournaments only periodically.
So, for example, Peru has been included into the list of participants of the World Cup after 36-year break. It was the Spanish FIFA World Cup 1982 during which Peru, being in one group with Italy, Poland and Cameroon, was the hopeless underdog (the 4th place).
Today in the team of Ricardo Gareca the most popular football player for the Russian fans is the forward of Lokomotiv, Moscow Jefferson Farfan.
Denmark (the head coach Åge Hareide)
Much more often, especially in this century, among the participants of the final World Cup tournaments was Denmark. Undoubtedly, the gold era of brothers Laudrup, Peter Schmeichel and other leaders of the champion of Europe 1992 became a history. However even now, in the modern team of the famous Norwegian coach Åge Hareide there are football players of the highest level who are capable to put the national team, at least, into the list of favorites of the third quartet.
This is, first of all, the playmaker of Tottenham, London Christian Eriksen. By his manner, and especially, by his level of a game Christian strongly reminds the legendary playmaker of French national team – Zinedine Zidane. The game of the Danish playmaker differs by magnificent take on the field, ability to give accurate assist and well run kick doing a Brazilian Didi. Undoubtedly, with such leader Denmark can hope to leave the group together with France in the first round of the playoffs.
