By Daniel Robertson

As we prepare for some marquee international friendlies this afternoon, headlined by the United States trip to Sarajevo to face Bosnia-Herzegovina, Raul Fernandez and Peru faced South Korea in Suwon overnight playing the Asian side to a 0-0 draw. 

According to reports from the match, FCD goalkeeper Raul Fernandez came up huge for the Peruvians making some big saves in the shutout. This report from El Comercio said Fernandez was Peru's man of the match and has video of an incredible save by Fernandez. 

Raul is expected to fly directly to Portland to meet up with FCD in plenty of time for Saturday's match against the Timbers and as the evidence shows, he's in fine form.
