Since 2015, Gareca has been widely praised. The Argentinian led the squad to a third-place Copa America finish in 2015 and a second-place finish in 2019, qualifying them for the 2018 World Cup. Peru won't play in back-to-back World Cups after today.
Arnold, the Australian coach, made a big choice when he put Andrew Redmayne in place of Mat Ryan. It paid off, as the substitute goalie made two key saves that sent Australia to its fifth straight World Cup this November in Qatar.
It's nearly midnight in Qatar, yet nobody seems ready to leave the stadium... rightly so. A place in the World Cup is at risk, and everyone wants to see the moment their team's fate was secured. There will be plenty of nail-biting and anxiousness when the players gather just before penalty kicks decide who returns to Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in November Says Faras Ghani.
Australia substitutes Andrew Redmayne for Mat Ryan. Graham Arnold's decision is huge. Ryan showed no symptoms of injury, thus penalties were likely. Goodwin replaced Behich for Australia.
