Peru were knocked out of the World Cup after a second straight loss on Wednesday, following up a 1-0 loss to Denmark with a defeat against France by the same scoreline score, but that hasn’t kept their fans from enjoying themselves in Russia.
With their team qualifying for football’s biggest tournament for the first time since 1982, the Peruvians have made sure to turn their time at the World Cup into a party.
“We’re here, 10,000 kilometres away from our place of birth, supporting our national team,” one fan said.

The two-time champions must beat Nigeria on Tuesday to avoid a group-stage exit after they were thrashed by Zlatko Dalic’s troops in Russia.
In an audio recording published by Spanish media, the Atletico Madrid boss took a dig at the national team and even captain Lionel Messi.
“What is happening right now is what has happened to the national team over the past four years, unfortunately: anarchy,” Simeone said.
“There is no leadership from the management or from those who are supposed to lead. I see a team that is lost.”
He added: “Messi is very good, but it is clear that he is very good because he is surrounded by extraordinary players (at Barcelona).
“The question I ask is if you have to choose between Messi and Ronaldo in a normal team, who would you choose?”
Yet, Simeone has hope that Argentina can turn around their fortunes.
“The team is all wrong, but it is Argentina and I believe that it will happen,” he said.
