    Football is a sad subject in Peru: people, especially men, love their football. The suffer their football would be more appropriate. But Peruvian national team isn’t good at all. Actually, we ended up as the last ones on the past qualification games for World Cup 2010. It’s been 29 years since we’ve been on a World Cup! The last one was in 1982, in Spain.
    But every four years, public opinion states that “this time we will qualify”.
