This result leaves Peru at the bottom of the standings and in a crisis that could potentially lead to the departure of coach Juan Reynoso.
Midfielders Henry and Ramiro Vaca secured Bolivia's first victory in the CONMEBOL Qualifiers on the road to the 2026 World Cup, defeating Peru 2-0. The win propelled Bolivia, while Peru tumbled from penultimate to last place, sparking a crisis that could jeopardize coach Juan Reynoso's position.
Henry put Bolivia in the lead, marking the debut of Brazilian Antonio Carlos on the bench, in the 19th minute. Three minutes from full time, Ramiro scored the second goal to seal the victory.
The match against Peru also marked the final appearance in La Paz for Bolivia's all-time leading scorer, Marcelo Martins Moreno, who recently announced his departure from the national team after the sixth round of the qualifiers.
In the upcoming sixth round on November 21, Bolivia will face Uruguay on the road, while Peru will host Venezuela.
