Pedro Gallese, Peru

Stats: 180 Minutes Played, 5 Saves, 1 Goal Conceded

Gallese is legitimately one of the best goalkeepers in international football. He made three big saves for Peru in a pivotal 1-0 upset of Colombia. He then started and made a couple of saves against Ecuador. Routinely, Gallese has been a hero for Peru, and he showed up again in this most recent window of games.

This was a huge window for Peru, especially with a win over Colombia. With that win and a draw over Ecuador, Peru are now fifth in qualifying, which would put them in an intercontinental playoff. They are two points clear of Chile for the playoff spot and just one point back of Uruguay for automatic qualification. If Gallese and Peru can make it to a second-straight world cup, it would be a historic accomplishment for Orlando's #1 and his national team.
