No Colombia pact, insists Peru's Tapia

No Colombia pact, insists Peru's Tapia

Earlier this year they were aided by a Federation Internationale de Football Association decision to strip Bolivia of their 2-0 victory over the Blanquirroja in La Paz for fielding an ineligible player. And the Bolivian football federation did not argue that the defender had failed to meet the eligibility rules set forth by FIFA. Peru will be without Jefferson Farfan, while Colombia will miss Cristian Zapata.

"These are the things that will come into play".

Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

"I spoke to Falcao and he told me that we were both ahead [in qualifying]", Peru's Renato Tapia said, per AS. But then, in an indirect free kick at goal, Peru equalized.

In the next few hours, Peru's Foreign Affairs Ministry and its Zealand counterpart will start to speed up the visa delivery process, so that Peruvians can make it to Wellington to attend November's World Cup play-off in time. This, however, never materialized, and both teams were happy to take it easy in the closing stages of the match. In truth, Chile had brought about their own downfall.

Tottenham Hotspur defender cautious about Colombia's World Cup chances. 2017 was their first real summer break for teams from the continent.

In comparison to the likes of Chile, Colombia and especially Argentina, Peru certainly lack pedigree and profile. They have a young team on the rise, which coach Ricardo Gareca has moulded into a cohesive unit.

Colombia entered the game fourth in the qualifying table in the last automatic qualification spot, while Peru had the same number of points but were fifth, in the play-off spot. It became apparent when they lost consecutive matches to Paraguay and Bolivia without scoring a goal. Lose, and watch the World Cup on television.

A loss for either side would have seen Alexis Sanchez's Chile overtake them - so Falcao took matters into his own hands.
