Date: Tuesday, 16th October 2018
Kick-off at 0:30 UK/ 1:30 CET
Venue: Rentschler Field (East Hartford).
The well-settled and in-form Peru takes on an American side still in transition. The visiting team comes into this match after defeating Chile 3-0. USA had a victory against Mexico but they were undone by Latin American sides such as Brazil and Colombia.
Peru qualified for the world cup for the first time in history and they will be looking to build on that momentum. They have a stable starting eleven who have excellent chemistry with each other. USA side is searching for a stable ground to hold on. With an interim manager at the helm, they are still a work in progress.
With sights set on the Copa America next year, Peru will likely put on a strong showing. The home team will definitely miss its talisman Christian Pulisic.
