Peru's Brazilian coach Paulo Autuori has named his 20-man squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifier with Colombia.
Autuori has named Nolberto Solano in his squad for the March 31 encounter, but he will in all probability have to change his plans as the Aston Villa winger damaged his hamstring at the weekend and is facing a spell on the sidelines.
Sporting Cristal midfielder Juan Cominges is a surprise name in the frame for a game which has caught the imagination of the public, as 42,000 tickets were sold in just one day.
Oscar Ibanez (Cienciano), Leao Butron (Alianza Lima), Jorge Soto (Sporting Cristal), Guillermo Salas (Alianza Lima), Santiago Acasiete (Cienciano), Miguel Rebosio (Real Zaragoza), Martin Hidalgo (Alianza Lima), John Galliquio (Universitario) Juan Jayo (Alianza Lima), Marko Ciurlizza (Alianza Lima), Carlos Zegarra (Sporting Cristal), Nolberto Solano (Aston Villa), Roberto Palacios (Monarcas Morelia), Juan Cominges (Sporting Cristal), Henry Quinteros (Sporting Cristal), Julio García (Cienciano), Claudio Pizarro (Bayern Munich), Andres Mendoza (Brugge), Jefferson Farfan (Alianza Lima), Roberto Silva (Alianza Lima).
