This was Peru's first win at the World Cup finals in 40 years. La Blanquirroja's most recent success was a 4-1 victory against Iran at Cordoba in 1978. It ended a run of eight games without a win at the World Cup finals (lost six). Andre Carrillo's goal was Peru's first at a World Cup finals since Guillermo La Rosa in the 83rd minute of a 5-1 defeat by Poland at La Coruna, Spain in 1982. At 34 years and 176 days, Paolo Guerrero became the third oldest South American player to score at the World Cup finals; after Uruguay’s Obdulio Varela (36 years and 279 days) against England in Basel in 1954 and Argentina’s Martin Palermo (36 years and 227 days) against Greece in Polokwane in 2010. Australia had now lost five of their last six games at the World Cup finals and now kept only one clean sheet in their all-time 16 World Cup finals games. Tim Cahill became the first player to appear for Australia at four World Cup finals (2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018).
