Australia coach Bert van Marwijk made it clear Monday that what happens 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) away in Moscow doesn’t matter if the Socceroos don’t find a way to beat Peru. That being said, van Marwijk is hoping France wants to finish the group stage with a more appealing performance than its first two games. And doing so may in turn help out Australia in Sochi. “They are proud players and they play two times. They won but they didn’t play the way they can play and they are one of the best teams in the world,” van Marwijk said. “I think they want to prove it and show it to the whole world. But I have no influence on that. The think I have influence on is the game against Peru.”
Peru coach Ricardo Gareca said Farfan was in good spirits and probably could have left the hospital already, but Russian protocol for this type of injury was to keep him in the hospital for 72 hours.
Peru, making its first World Cup appearance in 36 years, was eliminated after consecutive 1-0 losses. The South Americans played well in both matches but couldn’t capitalize on their scoring chances.
“We want to give at least some happiness to the Peruvian fans who have been here supporting us,” Guerrero said. “We don’t want to leave empty-handed.”
Australia can still advance, but it needs to defeat Peru and hope France beats Denmark in the other Group C match.
