Flag: Two red vertical bands and one central white one that is filled with the national coat of arms. If you’re wondering what the animal is on it it’s a vicuna (which is a relative of the llama).

Population: 31.7 million

Nickname: Peru are known both as La Blanquirroja (The White and Red) and the much more exotic Los Incas (The Incas).

Manager: Nicknamed "El Tigre" (The Tiger), Ricardo Gareca is the Argentinian coach who has managed teams to titles in Colombia, Argentina and Peru. He also won 20 caps for his country too.

Captain: Paolo Guerrero is back for the World Cup finals after successfully appealing against a ban for testing positive for cocaine.

Star Man: See above, although the attacking force that is Lokomotiv Moscow’s Jefferson Farfan can be a match-winner on his day.

Rising Star: Renato Tapis almost joined Liverpool when he was a youngster but the 22-year- old was rejected because of his height (or lack of it). Fast forward and this talented midfielder is now 6ft 1in and making massive strides in the Eredivisie with Feyenoord. Literally.
