Andre Carrillo Peru 2018 World Cup

Australia's slim hopes of progressing to the round of 16 were squashed by a clinical Peru in a 2-0 defeat in Sochi. 

The Socceroos started the game brightly but it would be Peru who struck first, with Andre Carrillo rifling a volley into the bottom left of goal after 18 minutes.

Needing a win to keep their hopes of progression alive, Australia threatened an equaliser in the first half but Peru held firm in defence. 

The South Americans then struck a second time just after the break with their skipper Paolo Guerrero finishing from a tight angle with 50 minutes played. 

While the Socceroos continued to push for a response, it just wasn't to be the green and gold's night as they were sent packing from Russia
