Football Soccer - World Cup 2018 - Peru's national soccer team training - Lima, Peru - May 19, 2018 - Peru's Sergio Pena and teammates attend a training session. On the other hand, Saudi Arabia will be opening the World Cup against Russian Federation after being drawn in group A alongside the hosts, Uruguay, and Egypt.

Paolo Guerrero, who won a last-ditch legal appeal to play at the World Cup despite being suspended for doping, or his nimble, powerful wing man, Lokomotiv Moscow's Jefferson Farfan, once of PSV and Schalke.

Carrillo opened the scoring with a stunning left-foot volley in the 20th.

Paolo Guerrero then doubled his side's lead in the 41st minute, tapping in a rebound from Edison Flores's saved shot.

Guerrero has played just a handful of matches for his Brazilian club Flamengo since he was initially banned on November 3, a ruling that forced him out of Peru's two-legged World Cup play-off with New Zealand.

Guerrero looked every bit the inspirational leader Peru campaigned to clear for action at their first FIFA World Cup appearance in 36 years.

"It was very emotional, for him, for his team mates, for all the supporters, and for his family and I am very happy", Peru coach Ricardo Gareca said.
