An optimistic When Brazil plays Peru in a World Cup qualifying match on Wednesday in Lima, the South American nation will be looking to build on the overwhelming victory they earned against Bolivia on Friday.

Bruno Guimaraes, who dominated in the middle of the field and assisted one goal in Brazil’s lopsided 5-1 victory against Bolivia in Bellem, praised the effect that Brazil’s new manager, Fernando Diniz, has had on the team.

“He [Diniz] has instilled a lot of belief in us,” Guimaraes said to the reporters on Sunday. “He has a unique perspective on football and is an excellent motivator. The fact that we have only had four training sessions with him means that there is still a lot of work to be done, but the game against Bolivia shown that we are headed in the right direction.

Guimaraes has been called up to the Brazilian national team 13 times but has only started four games for the team. The playmaker, who plays for Newcastle United and is 25 years old, expressed a desire to play a more pivotal role in the Brazil side that is coached by Diniz.

“I’ve had a lot of call-ups but not many minutes until now,” he stated earlier in the conversation.

Neymar, a standout forward for Brazil, recently surpassed the legendary Pele to become the country’s all-time leading scorer with 79 goals. Neymar will now attempt to add to his total in the future. In the second half of Brazil’s match against Bolivia, Neymar scored a brace to move above Pele and into sole possession of the national team scoring record with 77 goals.

In the meantime, Peru, who are playing host, will be looking to pull off an upset and win all three points after finishing their first game with a tie with Paraguay and sharing the spoils with them.

Peru will be delighted with the fact that they have now preserved three clean sheets in their past four matches, despite the fact that they have only won one of their most recent five international fixtures.

Another point on Tuesday would surely be considered a triumph for the hosts, but they will be dreaming of winning their first win over Brazil in a competitive setting since June of 2016.
