Peru booked the final spot in the 2018 World Cup with a 2-0 win against New Zealand on Wednesday night in Lima.

The national team of Peru for the fifth time and first since 1982, will play in the final stage of the world Cup.

Chasing a goal, New Zealand brought on Burnley striker Chris Wood and his introduction caused problems for the Peru defence.

Incredibly, Peruvian celebrations actually caused a seismological event, with a seismology detector in Chile sending out alerts of a possible natural disaster at the exact moment of this goal from Jefferson Farfan, which put Chile ahead 1-0 in the 28th minute.

When the final whistle blew in Lima, the pure elation and tears of joy from all Peruvians on the field and in the stands showed exactly what qualifying for the World Cup means to the country.

However, New Zealand hopes were crushed in the 64th minute when Christian Ramos poked home from the top of the six-yard box following a corner to make it 2-0 for the hosts.

A still tearful Farfan said after the match that his team had "to endure a lot of nonsense until we got here". "From the bottom of my heart, this is for you, Paolo, as I had promised", the Lokomotiv Moscow forward said.

Playing as a striker, he scored the goal that guaranteed them their place in Mexico in a 1985 qualifier, ironically against Peru, the team he would coach three decades later.

In his press conference Peru coach Ricardo Gareca preferred to thank the team's psychologist for the result.

'It is a wait of 35 years. 'All Peruvians should take this Thursday to celebrate as never before'.
