Carlos Zambrano was one of the fundamental pieces in the Blanquirroja during the game against Brazil. However, the defender was sent off by controversial referee Julio Bascuñán after an elbow to Richarlison at minute 85. At first, the Chilean referee decided to take him a yellow card, but after the VAR review, the Peruvian was sent off.
After this expulsion, Ricardo Gareca could not summon the ‘Kaiser’ for the match against Chile on November 13 and was awaiting the decision to confirm if the player could be part of the list in the match against Argentina. Friday morning the FIFA announced the suspension of Zambrano for three dates so not only will he not be in this double round of Qualifiers, but he will also be absent the next game against Bolivia in La Paz.
Cáceda also saw the red in the game against Brazil and will not be there for a date, in next Friday’s match against Chile.
