Highlights

90+4' 

FULL TIME

It's all over in Russia for both teams. The South Ameericans were the better team and deserved to send their fans home happy.

90+1' 

Peru try to break into the box on the left but Sainsbury intercepts.

88'

Milligan sees yellow for a frustrated grab at Cueva.

86' 

Guerrero breaks and it's three versus two... but his square ball is poor. He looks tired.

83' 

Australia win a free kick around 30 yards from goal. Jedinak lines it up but his effort flies over the crossbar.

80'

CHANCE!

Peru break with Guerrero, who cuts it back for Cueva - his shot rattles off the post!

79'

Hurtado lives up to his name (sorry) with a scything challenge on Behich.

79'

SUB: The goalscorer Carillo makes way for Wilder Cartanega.

77'

Leckie is flagged offside. Australia are failing to create they chances they need today.

76' 

Peru actually played better in their other two group games, but here they appear to have the three points.

72'

SUB: That's the last action ROgic will see. He makes way for Irvine.

71' 

CHANCE!

Rogic picks out Behich in the area with a beautiful 25-yard diagonal, but his cross/shot goes wide.

71' 

67' 

The Peruvian midfield is controlling this one. I don't rate the Aussies' chances of getting back into this one highly.

63'

SUB: An injured Tapia makes way for Hurtado.

61'
60'

Arzani's first contribution is a tactical foul to stop a Peruvian break.

59'

CHANCE!

A Mooy corner lands at the feet of Behich. He hits it first time and it's defelcted wide for another corner!

58'

SUB: Kruse makes way for 19-year-old Daniel Arzani.

58' 

Australia have had seven shots on goal to Peru's four. However, three of Peru's were on target and only two of Australia's.

56' 

The corner lands in traffic and pinballs around, but Peru clear to the halfway line.

55' 

Mooy swings in a free kick from the right corner of the box, but it doesn't make it any firther than the Peru wall. Corner.

53'

SUB: Cahill comes on for Juric!

51' 

Peru are playing for pride but giving their travelling fans a high note to leave on.

Even if Australia claw back three goals, the current deadlock in the other game sees them going home too.

50'

GOAL!

Cueva builds up play on the left hand side of the box and shoots. It's deflected and Guerrero poaches his 36th goal for the Incas!

48' 

Cometh the hour...

46'

SUB: Yotun is replaced by Pedro Aquino in the only change of the half.

46'

THE SECOND HALF BEGINS

Can Australia fight back to get the win they need to stand fo achance of making the knockout rounds? We will find out over the next 45 minutes!

46+1'

HALF TIME

The two sides are separated by a superb volleyed strike - Peru's first goal of the tournament.

As it stands, Australia are out.

45'

Yotun sees yellow for a slide on Leckie.

43' 

Yotun has a free kick in the same position as Mooy's - the right edge of the box. His curling effort is cleared by Milligan.

41' 

Mooy has a free kick on the right edge of the box. It's whipped in with pace for Kruse, but his header goes wide.

 

Rogic is having an excellent outing today. It will be a shame if he doesn't get on the scoresheet.

35' 

CHANCE!

Another chance for Rogic! Jedinak splits the Peru midfield with a pass to Kruse, who passes square to Rogic, but his shot is deflected for a corner!

32'

CHANCE!

Kruse breaks into the box and cuts it back for Rogic for a great opportunity, but the flag goes up.

28' 

Mooy swings in a corner but it lands straight in the 'keeper's gloves.

28'

CHANCE!

Rogic receievs the ball at the top of the box, beats three defenders and sees his shot saved!

25' 

A ball comes in to the Australian box from the right, but Peru's all-time leading scorer Paolo Guerrero can;t quite make contact.

24'
23' 

Leckie tries to get the ball into the box fromt he right, but he is instanbtly swarmed by three Peruvians.

The South Americans have picked up the pace a little.

21' 

Australia have it all to do now, they have to go forward to try and score.

But as it stands, with honours even between Denamrk and France, the Socceroos are going home anyway.

19' 

That came somewhat against the riun of play, but what a strike!

18'

GOAL!

Peru score in their first meaningful attack! And it's a belter!

Cueva breaks into the box and lifts the ball back to Andre Carillo near the edge of the box - he hammers in a right-footed volley !

17' 

Peru win what appears to be a very clear corner but somehow it isn't given. A strange decision.

17' 

He seems OK now.

16' 

Defender Christian Ramos is recovering after receiving an attempted clearance directly in his.... gentleman's area.

15' 

Australia have had 56% of possession so far, and look to be on top against a Peru side who are not as intense as we have seen previously.

10'

Jedinak sees tellow for a horrendous high kick near Cueva's face. He's lucky to stay on the field for that.

7' 

CHANCE!

Juric makes a diagonal run into the box and plays a ball across goal attempting to reach Kruse, but it doesn't quite reach its target!

5' 

Leckie picks up a Jediank long ball on the right flank and takes it to the touchline. He picks out Juric on the top of the box, who shoots wide.

4' 

Rogic wins a free kick near the halfway line.

3' 

The Socceroos have had most of the ball in the opening minutes. It's a fairly slow pace as they knock it around their back line.

1'

AND WE'RE OFF!

The ref pips his whistle and Guerrero takes the first touch!

14.55 

Kick-off is five minutes away in the afternoon heat and humidity of Sochi as the teams emerge from the tunnel!

The referee today is Sergei Karasev, a no-nonsense Russian who had dispatched four or more cards in each of his last five internationals.

14.50 

Before coming to the World Cup, Peru were undefeated in 15 games - winning 10 of them. The Socceroos had won only 6 of their 15 games going into the tournament, losing four of them.

15.45 

Another example of the extent to which Peru fans have gone to make it to Russia...

14.40 

Kick-off is 20 minutes away. The Aussies need Denamrk to lose to France and to beat Peru by a two-goal margin to guarantee a spot in the last 16.

14.35 

#KangarooBantz

14.30 

Tomi Juric comes in for the injured Andrew Nabbout in the only change to Bert van Marwijk's XI.

Peru have made two changes from the 1-0 loss to France - midfielder Renato Tapia returns to the side and centre-back Anderson Santamaria makes his tournament debut.

14.25 

The travelling South American fans have been sensational in Russia. Argentina have turned up in numbers, but approximately 43,000 have come from Peru.

According to the BBC, some sold their cars, gave up their jobs and took out big loans to follow their side to their first World Cup since 1982.

With some of the best fans - and almost certainly the best kit - it will be a shame to see Los Incas go home after this one.

14.20 

It's not just the UK that's having heatwave fun: it is currently 27 degrees in Sochi with a fairly stifling 70% humidity. That may affect the speed of play in this local 5pm kick-off.

14.15 

Australia and Peru have never met before, which means the South Americans may not be aware of The Socceroos' fearsome Rondo skills...

14.10 

There's a chance we're going to need a maths scholar to work things out by full-time, but the jist of the permutations goes as follows:

-If France beat Denmark and Australia beat Peru by a two-goal swing, the Aussies go through.

-If France beat Denmark 1-0 and Australia beat Peru 1-0, Denmark and Peru will have equal records, which would take it to the fair play criteria. Demark have four yellow cards right now to Australia's three.

14.05 

AUSTRALIA: Ryan, Milligan, Leckie, Juric, Kruse, Mooy, Jedinak, Behich, Risdon, Sainsbury, Rogic /// PERU: Gallese, Advincula, Ramos, Santamaria, Trauco, Tapia, Yotun; Carrillo, Flores, Cueva, Guerrero.

14.03 

Here's how they will line up! Tomi Juric gets the nod up top and, no, Tim Cahill does not start.
