The Peruvian National Team’s Struggles Continue
The Peruvian National Team suffered their fourth consecutive defeat in the Canada, United States, and Mexico 2026 World Cup Qualifiers. Facing tough opponents like Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and Bolivia, their position in the standings reflects their worrying moment – last place with only one point. The pressure is mounting on Juan Reynoso, the team’s coach, who addressed the media after the match at the Hernando Siles stadium in La Paz.
Reynoso’s Analysis and Determination
Reynoso expressed his disagreement with the notion that they were surpassed by their opponents. He mentioned that upon reviewing the video, he might find some answers. He emphasized the need for analysis and finding solutions to reverse their current form. The coach also commended the dedication of his players, despite the disappointing loss against Bolivia, highlighting their eagerness to achieve positive results.
He said, “As long as I see the effort of the boys, the anger they end up with, and what they have done at 3,600 meters, it excites me. From then on, this is football. There are extraneous situations, but I have always been very persevering in my life, and today is not going to be the exception.”
Speculations on Reynoso’s Future
Following the Peruvian National Team’s fourth consecutive defeat, frustrated fans at Hernando Siles expressed their desire for Juan Reynoso to step down from his position. However, the coach clarified that his contract is for the entire process and he understands the fans’ annoyance but doesn’t share their opinion. He believes that these challenging moments are part of football and it’s through hard work that they can turn things around.
