What everyone expected happened in a (2-2) match against Ecuador. Gianluca Lapadula scored his first goal and not only did he thrill the fans of the Peruvian team, but he also did so with his father who watched the whole match with his family.
“I really loved that my son scored as well as Andre Carrillo. Peru made a strong team with Ricardo Gareca. We are all very happy, my wife and my daughter. I speak because I respect Silvio Valencia so much”Gianfranco Lapadola, Gianluca’s father said in an interview with Exitosa Deportes.
Gianluca scored his first goal with the Peruvian national team in 7 matches he played. He had 4 matches in the qualifiers (the first match against Chile in Santiago in the second half) and 3 in the Copa America Brazil 2021. In addition, he has 3 assists, 2 against Ecuador in the qualifiers and another against the same team in the Copa America. .
“It’s a very powerful thing, it’s a dream. I am happy with my first goal. Also because of the tie that rating can give us. It’s a dream (scoring a goal with Peru). Every day I spend with the national team, I love everything that is original.”Lapadula said at the end of the match in an interview with DirecTV
Gianluca is skeptical about the last match in the Copa America against Venezuela. Because there is pain in the ankle, the technical order will not put it. Instead, the options that appear are Santiago Ormeño and Alex Valera, both of whom are already with minutes in competition.
Peru has the potential to reach the quarter-finals in second place in the group if they beat Venezuela. And with a draw, the Peruvian team guarantees its ranking to the next stage, even losing, but it is waiting for Ecuador’s defeat to Brazil.
