Qatar World Cup 2022 qualifier: Peru v Australia Updates from Peru vs Australia World Cup qualification match: 

Australia qualifies for the 2022 World Cup following a 5-4 penalty shootout win over Peru.

Australia has reached a fifth consecutive World Cup.

Substitute goalkeeper Redmayne was the hero for Australia with two key penalty saves.

Luis Advincula and Alex Valera miss spot-kicks for Peru.

Since taking charge of Peru in 2015, Gareca rightfully earned widespread praise. The Argentinian earned the team a third-place Copa America finish in 2015 before following that up with a runners-up finish in 2019 while also qualifying the nation for the 2018 World Cup.

Australian coach Arnold is clearly emotional in his post-match interview and understandably so. 

He came under scathing criticism due to Australia’s inconsistent performances since he became the team’s coach in 2018.

Australian coach Arnold made a big decision to replace Mat Ryan with Andrew Redmayne. 

It paid off as the substitute goalie made two key saves to see Australia home to a fifth consecutive World Cup in Qatar this November.

Today’s result means that Peru will not be playing in back-to-back World Cups.
