"It's a friendly, don't make such a big deal of it," he said. "It's true that it was a bad game but this continues. I remember before we were champions of America, we lost to Jamaica. It's a process we have to follow. We're going to fight for the Copa in Brazil." 

Asked about the multiple problems with Reinaldo Rueda's team, Arturo Vidal admitted there is a lot of work ahead: "The players have changed a lot. Of course we have to improve, but let's be calm. There's another game coming up and there is a long way to go. We lost in all aspects (against Peru). It was difficult to play on this pitch, but we have to keep on improving." 

Vidal's national team problems come after a week in which his Barça career has been in the spotlight. After failing to play as much as he would like, he has posted some angry messafes on social media, but he insists he is happy at Camp Nou.
