Peru cannot afford to lose to Brazil, says Claudio Pizarro
Pizarro only featured from the bench in the team’s final warm-up fixture for the tournament where they drew 1-1 with Mexico.
However, he could find himself starting their first match in Chile with Paolo Guerrero’s fitness a worry following an ankle injury picked up during a training game. The 36-year-old revealed that Peru are hopeful of taking something from the meeting with the Seleção in Temuco. Pizarro told RPP: “We know that Brazil is a very strong team with good players, but we must be humble and go game by game. The attitude is that we must not lose.”
