The Inca team has been giving good results in recent years, the result of having a generation of good players, good technique and talent, led by the Argentine coach Ricardo Gareca. One of the most recent triumphs of this selection was the qualification to the FIFA World Cup, held in Russia in 2018. A tournament that Peru did not classified 36 years ago.

Peru has passed through the group stage in each of the last eight participations in the Copa América; the last time they did not do so was in 1995, however, the “rojiblanco” team dreams of winning the tournament title again, after their distant conquests of 1939 and 1975. In the last edition, in 2015, the team led by Ricardo Gareca. He stayed with the third place.
