Peru is in a complicated position just like Uruguay to qualify for the world cup. If Peru win on Friday against Uruguay, they would get three vital points which opens up the possibility of booking their ticket to Brazil in 2014. However, a defeat will be the end to the Peruvian dream.
On Wednesday night, Peruvian fans decided to take matters into their own hands. The bus carrying the Uruguayan national team were egged on the way to their hotel in Lima. The disturbances did not stop there. Police had to set a barrier to prevent local fans to advance towards the hotel as they came prepared with drums, horns and firecrackers to disturb the Celeste’s sleep.
Sebastian Bauza, foreshadowed the occurrence of these events and booked rooms in the 12th floor which have double glass windows. These reinforced glass windows, prevent any noises that may disturb their much needed sleep
This is not the first time football fans have tried to cause a racket to disturb the rival’s sleep and it will not be the last but is it fair? There is no rule which restricts fans.
