Radamel Falcao Responds To Accusations That He Negotiated Colombia Vs Peru Draw

Radamel Falcao Responds To Accusations That He Negotiated Colombia Vs Peru Draw

Elsewhere, Chile fell out of World Cup contention - despite their status as back-to-back South American champions - with a ruinous 3-0 loss to Brazil. Peru on the other hand, heads to next month's intercontinental playoffs at the expense of Chile, who were eliminated.

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. The Barcelona forward completely foxed his opponents and helped La Albiceleste script a 3-1 victory.

Whether or not Peru chose to play along with Falcao's plan is unknown, although both teams did play extremely conservatively to end the match; whether that was because of a supposed pact or just because it was smart to not open yourself up for an unnecessary counter will be argued for years to come.

Both teams faced an emotional game, and while Colombia played its heart-out until the final minutes, in Quito, Argentina's Lionel Messi scored three goals against Ecuador, securing the Albiceleste's place in Russian Federation 2018. So we managed the game as we needed to...

The Chileans lost to Brazil 3-0 and needed Colombia to beat Peru to secure their place in Russian Federation.

All except for Chile who were required to play in the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russian Federation - the precursor to the main event in 2018. They have a young team on the rise, which coach Ricardo Gareca has moulded into a cohesive unit. They must beat New Zealand in a play-off in November to go through. It became apparent when they lost consecutive matches to Paraguay and Bolivia without scoring a goal.

A loss for either side would have seen Chile - who eventually finished sixth on goal difference - overtake them for a possible spot in Russian Federation.

"Out of all of them, that was a team that'd give us confidence".

"I have always believed", said Hudson.

"Of these options, I rule myself out".

For the first time in five years, Chile will now have a summer free of football; with ample time to reflect on how they failed to qualify for the biggest tournament on the planet.
