Navarro to coach Peru vs Ecuador

LIMA - Former international striker Franco Navarro will coach Peru for their friendly against Ecuador in Spain next week, the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF) said.

Navarro returns to the national team after a spell in charge in 2006, replacing Jose del Solar whose side finished bottom of the South American qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup.

The match will be played at the Vicente Calderon stadium in Madrid on December 21. The FPF did not say whether Navarro would continue in the job after the friendly.
