Colombia tie Peru and advance to the 2018 World Cup

Given results in other fixtures in their qualifying group for Russian Federation 2018, a draw would prove to be enough to see Colombia qualify directly for next summer's competition and for Peru to secure a play-off spot against New Zealand to qualify for the World Cup at the expense of Chile.

The two nations played out a 1-1 draw in their final qualifier this week, which earned the Colombians their place at the Russian Federation showpiece while Peru are through to the playoffs, ahead of Chile on goal difference.

On Tuesday night, Peru, received Colombia for the last game of qualifying for the world Cup from the zone Conmebol.

Peru equalised in the match through national hero Pablo Guerrero in the 76 minute, presenting both sides with a favourable tied scoreline.

Chile's 3-0 loss in Brazil meant the South American champions miss out on Russian Federation due to goal difference.

Falcao has been criticised on social media for his actions, with some even accusing him of match fixing. "They knew what the situation was in the other games", Tapia told Panamericana TV.

He told Colombian outlet Win Sports: "I believe that Colombia today can play against anyone".

But he said both sides competed for the win throughout the 90 minutes despite a lack of attacking in the final stages, per Martyn Ziegler of The Times: "We knew what was happening in the other matches, we were playing with [the knowledge of] the other results and in that moment [I tried] to transmit that [to Peru]".

Former Newcastle midfielder Nolberto Solano, who is on Peru's coaching staff, supported Tapia's comment about the alleged pact.

Peru will now go up against New Zealand in a two-legged encounter with the victor guaranteed a place at next summer's tournament.
