      Flores hits the post

      Captain Guerrero sends a pass inside the box to Flores, who hits it at the post. Peru have Australia all over the place. Brilliant play from the men in red shirts.

      21:10 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Substitution

      The man who scored Peru's opening goal Andre Carillo comes off to a loud cheer and clap by the fans of the red shirts. He is replaced by Cartagena as Cahill is making his last World Cup appearance. 

      21:05 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Peru fans happy

      In case you were thinking that the other match would have been more interesting, looks like it is headed for a goalless draw. Meanwhile, here in Sochi, the match seems to be drifting from the hands of Australia, who are 2-0 down. Peru fans in the stands are the happiest.

      After Mooy fails to hit the taget, Rogic gets booked for another tactical foul on Cueva. Meanwhile, Arzani comes close to scoring Australia's first goal but it goes over the bar.

      20:54 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Cahill

      At the age of 38, Cahill comes on to make his first appearance at the Russia World Cup and if he scores, he will join an elite group of those who have scored at four different World Cups.

      20:50 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Australia look desperate

      Peru manage to clear the box after what could have been Australia's breakthrough. Australia look desperate now as  Kruse comes off, and Arzani comes on.  

      20:44 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      GOAL! Australia 0-2 Peru

      GOAAALL! Australia's worst nightmare! Peru captain  Paolo Guerrero doubles their lead. Not that it will make any difference or let them continue in the World Cup but this will definitely be a happy exit for Peru, who are playing in the World Cup after 36 years. 

      20:34 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Second half

      The second half of Australia vs Peru is underway. It has been goalless in the other group match between Denmark vs France. But that does not change anything in the group standings unless Australia go big.

      20:21 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      HALF-TIME

      At the break, it is Australia 0-1 Peru. If it stays like this, it means the end of World Cup for Australia. Peru score their first goal of the tournament and will hope to exit from the tournament in Russia with a win.

      20:12 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Free kick

      Australia are rewarded with a free kick from a good angle as Jedinak draws a foul after being dropped to the ground. Mooy takes it but Sainsbury's header misses the target. 

      20:07 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      So close

      That should have been a goal! Leckie was this close to equalising when two Peru deffenders come from nowhere to save their lead. Why are Australia not changing the scoreline!

      20:04 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Offside

      Australia build up well for an equaliser but the flag is up. The Socceroos looking desperate now as they can  be seen creating more and more chances.  They enjoyed majority of posession but saw themselves 1-0 down out of nowhere.

      19:58 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Australia counter-attack

      A surprised and complaining Australia get back in the game and counter-attack. It does not amount to anything concrete but the Socceroos now have a a lot to work on.

      19:52 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      GOAL! Australia 0-1 Peru

      GOAAALLL! What-e-change of events! Peru come out of nowhere to take the lead through a strike by Andre Carillo, who had his eyes firmly on the ball. He scored Peru's first goal in this tournament and first goal in 36 years at the World Cup.

      Jedinak has been booked for a foul on Cueva, hitting him on the shoulder with his boot. Ten minutes of the game are up and no solid chances created so far although Australia look like they are getting into the groove.

      19:39 (IST)26 Jun 2018
      Kickoff

      Here we go! The match between Australia and Peru is underway at the Fisht Stadium. Australia need more number of goals to win by to continue their World Cup journey. They do not start on a very bright note. Peru dominate in the beginning.

      Australia seek more goals in crunch match against Peru

      With their hopes of reaching the World Cup’s knockout rounds on a knife-edge, Australia head into their must-win match against Peru under pressure to score goals and with fingers crossed that France will bring their A-game against Denmark. Long hampered by a lack of firepower, the Socceroos’ two goals in Russia have both come from Mile Jedinak penalties but relying again on the cool head of their captain from the spot may be perilous for their hopes of advancing.

      Key Players

      For Australia, the key player will be Mile Jeddinak. He has scored goals in both the matches for Socceroos, and has the ability to trouble the opposition with his speed. For Peru, the captain, Paolo Gurrero is likely to be the main man. He has failed to score in the previous match, but can dominate over Australia defence.

      Australia hope France wants to show best

      Australia coach Bert van Marwijk made it clear Monday that what happens 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) away in Moscow doesn’t matter if the Socceroos don’t find a way to beat Peru. That being said, van Marwijk is hoping France wants to finish the group stage with a more appealing performance than its first two games. And doing so may in turn help out Australia in Sochi. “They are proud players and they play two times. They won but they didn’t play the way they can play and they are one of the best teams in the world,” van Marwijk said. “I think they want to prove it and show it to the whole world. But I have no influence on that. The think I have influence on is the game against Peru.”

      Australia vs Peru Live

      Australia will take on Peru with the hope of registering a place in the Round of 16 tonight. But after a draw and a loss in their opening two matches against Denmark and France, respectively, Australia have to win their match against Peru to push for a contention in the Round of 16. The task, though, might even be more difficult, as their future is also tied to the result between Denmark and France match, as they would need France to beat Denmark, as well. Will Australia make it through to the knockout stages?
