  1. Very nice list, the 23 men listed are hard to argue against.

    I just change the formation for two reasons:
    – Perú didn’t used to played like that.
    – Any of the wingers will cover the flanks at defensive phase.


    1. Hello, Msioux75!! I’m a big fan of you. I enjoy read your posts at Bigsoccer. Be wellcome.

      About the formation, Is true that I didn’t adapt classic Peru with formation that used to play. That applies to all teams. The main intentions is build the best XI as possible.

  2. castillo out – challe in
    gomez sanchez out – oblitas in
    valeriano lopez out – pizarro in

    11 titulares
    solano benitez chumpitaz fuentes
    velasquez cueto
    sotil lolo cubillas

    1. I will keep castillo and lopez. Both research an interesting peak.

      I still have doubts about my inclusion of gómez sánchez. There are others good options for the squad.

      Good XI, (althought the absence of Meléndez) I enjoyed 🙂

  3. one question, why do you think valeriano lopez is so important?

    maybe I read the same things as you did he did not accomplished anything so important, here in peru sometimes i spoke with old people asking them about valeriano, they told me valeriano was a great striker , good header … but nothing more … you know,

    they told me lolo fernandez was better a very complete player and also he was important in the national team , about pizarro he is the most succesful peruvian football player abroad, he is 40 and he is still playing in the bundesliga

    i think pizarro should be considered.

    challe was a fan of castillo, titina was his teacher coach, but i think challe was a key player for the qualification to world cup 1970 and in the world cup , on the other hand titina castillo was important in berlin 1936, but dont forget peru played with its A-team and the europeans played with amateurs.

    that is my impression , by the way very nice forum.

    1. Valeriano is regarded as one of best foward in South America in his peak. Although that a very good call for Pizarro.

      I have access to a extent (and amazing) job done by a big expert of Peruan football. He didn’t consider Pizarro superior to López (for me is very close) or Challe superior to Castillo.
