Lima, Peru will play international friendlies against Latin American rivals Paraguay and El Salvador in March, the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF) has announced.
Both matches will be held in the United States and will provide Peru’s players with a last chance to impress head coach Ricardo Gareca before he chooses his squad for the 2019 Copa America, reports Xinhua news agency.
The Blanquirroja will face Paraguay in New York on March 22 and El Salvador in Washington four days later, according to an FPF statement, issued on Friday.
Peru suffered friendly losses to Ecuador and Costa Rica in their most recent outings last month. The Copa America will be played in five Brazilian cities from June 14 to July 7.
