How much do you know about Peruvian football?
If the answer is very little then you might want to brush up, as the latest FIFA rankings have made for interesting reading.
Peru have risen to 12th, one place below Spain and, more importantly, three places above England.
England have slipped two places meaning they are now also below Wales, who rose from 18th.
But let’s not get bogged down in England’s demise. Let’s focus on the positives.
Peru’s current ranking is the highest in their history and all the more impressive when you consider that only eight years ago La Blanquirroja were down in 91st.
Lets have a mid-article quiz.
How many players from the current Peru squad can you name, off the top of your head?
For a start there’s former Bayern Munich striker Paolo Guerrero, who captains the national team and is still scoring goals out in Brazil.
Then there’s winger Jefferson Farfan who had two excellent spells with PSV Eindhoven and Schalke.
A slightly more left field name is Andy Polo, who’ll be familiar to Football Manager players and is currently playing his football in Mexico.
Would you take all three in the England squad?
