The Australians also spoke about the Peruvian championship and the participation of their teams in the Copa Libertadores: “The standard of their national championship has collapsed. A Peruvian club have not reached the second round of the Copa Libertadores in nine years, already the country is going through a player development crisis that will sound familiar to Australian fans.

Doha, on the other hand, has been home to Australia away from home, we played two games there due to travel restrictions. The Australian team knows the climate and has thrived there.”
