The coach of the Peruvian Selection, Ricardo Gareca, regretted that their leaders have fallen by the slightest difference before Bolivia “by details” and despite having carried out well the match corresponding to the fifth date of the South American qualifying rounds of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
“I think we worked the game well, we got along well, but in an oversight we ended up losing unfortunately”, said ‘el Tigre’ Gareca at the press conference after the match played at the Hernando Siles stadium in La Paz.
The strategist argued that all “they are wrong for the result”, although he assured not to have “reproaches” for his staff that “has given everything” in the field.
“Today we are not very fine at the moment of being able to choose the best play, but the team was patient, had peace of mind, worked the game and at the moment when we were better, the goal of Bolivia came”, he indicated.
While Blanquirroja was looking to take La Paz’s three points, it will now look to turn the page as soon as possible to focus on its next opponent in the playoffs, which is Argentina, Gareca added.
The coach acknowledged that the date was also complicated “by the number of injured” registered in Peruvian ranks and said that they will “fight to the end” to achieve a place in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
“The most important thing of all is not to lower your arms, is to continue, you have to fight and we are used to that. So it is important that the team recovers to face Argentina”, he indicated.
