Possible replacements

Miguel Trauco has had a great performance in recent games. Against Bolivia he participated directly in two goals, assisting one of them. Meanwhile, against Venezuela he shot the stick. Although he committed the penalty, his performance was good for the left side of the selection.

In his case there is not much drama. Its natural replacement is Marcos Lopez. The San José Earthquakes footballer from Major League Soccer has even won the spot in some games, showing defensive strength and projection in attack.

“When Professor Gareca asks me and wants a replacement for Trauco, I will be prepared”Lopez said in early 2020. Today, almost two years later, the winger has already added eleven games in the 2022 Qualifiers (five from the starter and six coming from the bench). As a winger or as a winger he always fulfilled.

In addition, as an option there is also Nilson Loyola, who returned to the call precisely for the duels against Bolivia and Venezuela. The celestial was not considered since last year.

By right

With a couple of months to analyze and decide what is best for the Peruvian team, Ricardo Gareca will have to prepare for the match against Colombia without two of his starting defenses. Who are the possible replacements? Let’s evaluate it on a case-by-case basis.

The Bicolor so far has not found the replacement for Luis Advíncula. The right-back has played 13 of the 14 games in the Playoffs. Solo was not in the loss to Argentina in Buenos Aires due to injury. His replacement was Jhilmar Lora, the Sporting Cristal player who began to gain ground in the America’s Cup 2021, a tournament in which ‘Lucho’ was not because he was playing the promotion playoffs with his former club, Rayo Vallecano.

If we rely on the background, Aldo Corzo would be the natural replacement. In fact, he did it in the Copa América – he rotated with Lora-. However, the Cristal also has arguments to take over the position. Al Colombia vs. Peru will arrive with the experience of having played two League 1 finals and international tournaments (Sudamericana and Libertadores) with their club.

Other options would be Oslimg Mora, who debuted with the national team in the 1-0 loss to Bolivia in La Paz, and Carlos Zambrano, the center-back who has no problem playing for the band. The two can join the variants that the ‘Tigre’ handles to take care of the side on which the Colombian Luis Díaz moves, one of the most unbalanced extremes of the continent.
