Australia's World Cup group opponents Peru have named their provisional squad for the finals in Russia, but the roster does not include 39-year-old striker Claudio Pizarro or suspended forward Paolo Guerrero.
Guerrero was excluded from the tournament on Monday after the Switzerland-based Court of Arbitration for Sport extended his doping suspension from six months to 14 months.
He was a key player in the qualifying phase for the South American country, who have qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1982.
But coach Ricardo Gareca has defiantly claimed his side can still be a force without their top scorer.
"Paolo is a sensational player, an idol, but life goes on and we have to represent the country in the best way possible," Gareca old reporters.
"We are going to be prepared for the maximum of demands and we are going to resolve all the possible inconveniences that present themselves.
"These boys grow when they come here, they are transformed when they pull on that shirt."
Guerrero left out veteran striker Pizarro but included forwards Andre Carrillo of English Premier League side Watford, Raul Ruidiaz of Mexican side Monarcas, and Jefferson Farfan, who plays for Locomotiv Moscow."
The latter two are small and quick but the side will continue to play the long-ball game that took them to Russia.
"We are taking two centre forwards with different characteristics," Gareca said.
"Farfan can outjump any defence in the world. Raul Ruidiaz, with his stature, can win balls in the air. We have the means to hold up the ball in attack, as we've been doing."
Peru will play a friendly against Scotland in Lima on May 28, after which they travel to Europe for a friendly in Austria on June 3 against Saudi Arabia and one more on June 9 against Sweden in Gothenburg.
Apart from the Socceroos, who Peru face in Sochi on June 26, Group C also features Denmark and France.
