Showcasing their history, passion and constant fight against adversity, the Peruvians have warned their World Cup opponents that they are back in football's showpiece tournament.
Dear @Socceroos ,— FPF (@TuFPF) May 22, 2018
It will be an honor to compete against you in the @FIFAWorldCup . As you know, we have been away from the FWC for a long time, that is why we have prepared this video to remind you of who we are.
See you soon.#ArribaPeru pic.twitter.com/wVUkwTqN3a
Peru qualified for Russia via a playoff against New Zealand after finishing fifth in the notoriously tough South American qualifying process.
They are currently third favourite to progess from their World Cup group behind France and Denmark but ahead of Australia.
Talismanic striker Paolo Guerrero will be absent from their squad, after being banned for cocaine use until 2019.
The captains of France, Denmark and Australia banded together to pen a letter in support for Guerrero to have the ban lifted so he could participate in Russia.
