Peru's coach Ricardo Gareca asked the red-white squad's fans to continue believing in the national soccer team and to remain calm.

With unwavering calm, Gareca concluded his participation at the Final Draw for the 2018 FIFA World Cup football tournament at the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow.

Regarding Peru's rivals, the coach said they will be just as difficult as every other opponent. 

Yet, he continued, matches have to be played and a proper preparation must be carried out in order to face them.

"I like the group with France at the top, and there are teams that adapt to our characteristics. I like it. The group is tough, but I like it," he expressed.

The Incas were placed in the same Group as France, Denmark and Australia.
