Minute   Description
90' +4 What an opportunity for Guerrero! And now Peru have won themselves a late, late free-kick deep inside the Argentina half of the pitch after Guerrero is clumsily fouled by Acuna. The striker steps up and unleashes a great save, but Sergio Romero is just about able to tip it over the crossbar with a strong save.
90' +3 Another mistimed challenge on Messi presents Argentina with a great opportunity to test Peru with a late free-kick, but Messi can't pick out a team-mate in front of goal and instead chips a cross straight into the hands of Gallese.
90' +1 Once again, Messi manages to get a shot away from just outside of the visitors' penalty area as Argentina desperately try to find a late goal, but another white and red shirt denies the captain the opportunity to fire his side into the lead with what would surely prove to be a winning goal.
90' M. Acuña gets yellow.
Yellow card Marcos Acuña
89' No, they can't! Messi steps up and unleashes a curling strike, but it's underhit and once again fails to get the better of the Peru wall. Argentina are quickly running out of time...
88' Messi twists and turns on the edge of the Peru penalty area before being brought down by a clumsy challenge, leaving the referee with no choice but to award the home side a free-kick in an extremely dangerous position. Can they make it count with a late goal?
86' A pocket of space opens up for Messi just outside of the Peru box and allows the Argentina captain to get a shot away, but, not for the first time this evening, Araujo is there to throw his body in the way of the strike to stop it from testing Gallese.
84' Flores makes a clever run through the slightly disjointed Argentina back line and into the hosts' penalty area as he latches onto a well-placed pass, but his run forward is slightly mistimed and he's quickly flagged offside.
82' Another Argentina attacking move fails to result in anything, allowing Polo to break down the right flank before winning Peru a corner that, understandably, they take their time with. It's whipped into the middle of the penalty area and bounces around dangerously, but the home side are just about able to deal with the danger before anyone can get a shot away.
80' Peru are able to push forward on a rare foray into the Argentina half of the pitch as they try to hit the home side on the break, but a lofted pass up towards Guerrero fails to find the striker and is comfortably dealt with by Otamendi on the edge of the box.
