Edison Flores was one of Peru’s key players during their qualifying campaign for Russia 2018, scoring five goals in 14 appearances. 

Ever since breaking into the Universitario first team at the age of 17, the skilful and pacey left winger has been tipped for the top, and in 2013, then *Blanquirroja *coach Sergio Markarian put this notion to the test by handing him his first senior cap. 

It was not until Ricardo Gareca took up the reins, however, that the attack-minded wide man began to make a real impact at international level, the shrewd coach giving him more freedom to express himself on the pitch. 

With his overall game constantly improving since his move to European football (he signed for Danish side Aalborg in 2016), Flores has developed into a player who is sure to give opposing defenders some uncomfortable moments in Russia.
