Solano gets another run-out

Nolberto Solano has got another 90 minutes action under his belt for Peru although he will have been disappointed after a 2-0 defeat in Chile.

The versatile West Ham United player saw his international side beaten in Santiago and also picked up a 71st-minute yellow card for his troubles. The loss, coupled with a 0-0 home draw against Paraguay last Saturday, means Peru have made a slow start to their 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Peru have not played at the finals since 1982 but have high hopes of taking one of the four automatic spots on offer to teams from South America in South Africa after the ten-team continental table is played out on a home and away basis. The fifth-placed team go through to a play-off against one of the teams from CONCACAF - the North and Central America, and Caribbean section. Solano has yet to make his club debut since moving to the Boleyn Ground on August transfer deadline day.
