South American qualifying, which team will face the All Whites?

South American qualifying, which team will face the All Whites?

Ricardo Gareca's team kept alive their hopes of qualifying for their first World Cup since 1982 by drawing 1-1 with Colombia in their final South American qualifier on Tuesday, a result that left them fifth in the CONMEBOL group.

Falcao was criticised for appearing to inform the Peru players that they did not need to attempt to score a winning goal as the 1-1 scoreline would see Colombia progress to Russian Federation and Peru go into the play-offs.

The Monaco striker denied accusations he tried to strike a deal with Peru players to see out a draw and both sides fought to the bitter end. South American media published photos of the moment and dubbed it the "Lima Pact".

Because of the result Colombia qualified for Russian Federation 2018 automatically while Peru go through to a play-off.

Instead, both teams finished on 26 points and Peru finished higher thanks to their superior Goal Difference!

"He did a great job and helped us a lot in completing the idea with Cuadrado, James and Falcao in attack".

It actually sees Falcao discuss with multiple opponents, but also one of the players peruvians ask his bench, "you going?" as if to confirm the information he had just received.

Chile were on course for Russian Federation during Tuesday night's final round of CONMEBOL qualifiers until Peru equalised against Colombia in the 76th minute. "They knew what the situation was in the other games", Tapia told Panamericana TV station in an interview aired on Wednesday.

"Peru are very good, they are highly ranked and they got a great result against Argentina in qualification, but I feel, out of all of them, we can take confidence out of having to play them".

As most of us who were staying up to watch these fixtures would have been paying closest attention to Messi's performance in Ecuador, it subsequently became clear that one man paying close heed to the permutations and how they suited his country was Radamel Falcao. "What pact? That's speculation", he told RPP radio station.
