  2. A Profile of the Peru National Football Team

    Currently, the Peru national football team is in the midst of the 2015 Copa America, vying for a spot in the tournament's knockout stage. Sunday's match against Colombia will determine whether or not the squad progresses to the next round. In the meantime, we figured it was an appropriate time to look back at Peru's history as a football nation.

    Peru at the World Cup

    Soccer fans who only pay attention to global events like the World Cup haven't seen much of the Peruvian Peru Home Shirt 2015/16side over the years. In fact, the White and Red have only participated in four World Cups throughout history first in the tournament's inaugural 1930 event, and not again until 1970. 1970 saw the team's peak at the global FIFA competition with a sixth place finish. Subsequent qualifications followed in 1978 and 1982, but Peru hasn't been back to the World Cup since.

    Peru at the Copa America

    Peru's history at the Copa America (and previously, at the South American Championship) is stronger, but only marginally more impressive in recent years. When the event was the South American Championship (from 1916 to 1967), the Peruvian national team won one title (in 1939) and finished third on four occasions (in 1927, 1935, 1949, and 1955).

    When the event name was changed to the Copa America, Peru's fortunes only improved. They won the very first incarnation of the Copa America tournament in 1975, beating Bolivia and Chile in the group stage, toppling Brazil in a two-leg semifinal, and besting Colombia in the finals to win the trophy. The finals that year were particularly thrilling, coming down to a third playoff game after the first two legs left the aggregate score at stalemate.

    Peru continued to
