Raphael Lutiger (Switzerland)
Another young Sporting Cristal player who has caught the eye is Rafael Luiger. The 21-year-old defender has gradually carved his way into the sky-blue team and shown plenty of solvency, but he hasn’t been part of the Peru squad yet. Having Swiss roots, however, the centre-back could represent that country.
Oliver Sonne (Denmark)

The defender was born in Denmark and has Peruvian roots, but has not previously had any contact with the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF).
