Peru's Guerrero scores twice in win over Saudi Arabia

Peru's Guerrero scores twice in win over Saudi Arabia

Former Arsenal striker and cult hero Nicklas Bendtner has been left out of Denmark's 23-man squad for the World Cup.

And Peru's all-time leading scorer made an immediate impact in his comeback on Sunday after his brace inspired a 3-0 win over fellow World Cup participants Saudi Arabia.

Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner will miss the World Cup in Russian Federation due to a groin injury.

Peru are going to their first World Cup since 1982. As fans, we like to watch the great players and Paolo is on that list.

They quickly took control and Carrillo fired them in front in the 20th minute, controlling the ball on his chest and scoring with a half-volley after a clearance was headed straight to him.

Ronaldo hat-trick steals the show as Portugal and Spain draw classic
The FC crew examine how Cristiano Ronaldo has adjusted his game with age to remain one of the world's elite players. Getting a rivalry game of this importance so early in the World Cup is a nice treat for soccer fans.

The 34-year-old striker won a last-ditch legal appeal on Thursday (May 31) to appear at the tournament in Russian Federation despite being banned after testing positive for traces of cocaine following a World Cup qualifier against Argentina last October.

That suspension was then halved by Fifa's appeal committee but the World Anti-Doping Agency appealed to Cas and, less than two weeks after his six-month ban ended in May, it was extended it to 14 months.

The Swiss federal tribunal, Guerrero's last legal recourse, overturned a ruling by the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) that saw him suspended for 14 months.

Peru - unbeaten in 14 matches since 2016 - are set to make their first World Cup appearance in 36 years, with Ricardo Gareca's men scheduled to face Denmark (June 16), France (June 21) and Australia (June 26) in Group C.
