Peru Copa America 2024 Squad

Peru are set to play their 33rd Copa America after their first appearance in 1927 wishing for a 10th straight knockout qualification. La Rojiblanca still relies on their old heads to make a difference in the tournament even after changing their management. 11 of the players are aged 32 or above while six have less than 10 caps to their name. Jorge Fossati’s team wishes the competition experience of some of the players to help them escape their group containing Chile, Canada and holders Argentina.        


The most successful campaigns for Peru came in 1939 and 1975 when they lifted the Copa America title. The first triumph came on home soil in the tournament played in a single round-robin format involving five teams. La Bicolor stood first by winning all four games, two points ahead of Uruguay. Teodoro Fernández starred with a tournament-high seven goals. Peru made it to their first final this century in 2019 when they were beaten by the hosts Brazil. The Selecao also beat them in the semifinals last edition, eventually finishing fourth after failing to win the third-place playoff against Colombia.      

Preparation for Copa America 2024

Peru are keeping a steady form ahead of the tournament in the USA, having not lost a single game in the last five games. The team has collected three wins and a draw under Jorge Fossati’s tenure this year with just one goal conceded. Their goal-scoring has also improved with seven goals in that period having managed just three last year. However, Peru are yet to face a higher-ranked opponent under the new management.

Peru's task will be tough to get out of the group stage with holders Argentina and the last edition’s quarterfinalists Chile being part of the group. Even debutant Canada could be tricky to face. With La Albiceleste to face in the final group game, the chance might decrease for the Peruvians if they fail to take at least four points from the first two matches. Winning the opener against rivals Chile will be key in deciding their faith.
