Chile will not report Peru & Colombia for alleged World Cup 'pact'

Peru striker Paolo Guerrero celebrates his late equaliser on against Colombia

The game was tied at the time, while Chile were losing to Brazil, which meant that Colombia would qualify for the 2018 World Cup as the fourth-placed team in the South American qualification table, while Peru booked the playoff spot and Copa America champions Chile missed out.

"In the last few minutes, we were tougher for the experience against Paraguay and when the goal came it was not easy", he said.

With only Brazil safely assured of their place in Russian Federation next summer, Uruguay, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Chile and Paraguay entered the final match-day with it all to gain - or lose.

In September 2016, Matchday 6 saw Chile play Bolivia at home in Santiago and the match did not go according to plan for La Roja as the game ended in a 0-0 draw.

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

Jose Pekerman singled out debutant Duvan Zapata after Colombia earned a 1-1 draw with Peru to qualify for the World Cup on Tuesday.

NBC's Seth Meyers to Trump Supporters: Stop Watching My Show; "Go Away"
Eminem closed the piece by saying people who don't support the president love the military and the country, but "hate Trump ". He then tried his own hand at dropping rhymes: "My name is Seth and I'm here to say, if you like Trump then go away".

That tournament had effectively taken the wind out of their sails and by the time the World Cup qualifiers were upon them, the squad was exhausted.

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].

"We know that they are going to be two very hard matches", Guerrero, who plays his club football for Brazil's Flamengo, told reporters. Chile needed Colombia to win the game in order to oust Peru, while the Peruvians only needed to get a point and some help from Brazil to advance. "I spoke with Radamel, who told me we were both qualified [as things stood]". We know we can compete.

Tapia also said the result had been discussed on the field but also said his team would always play to win.

"What I can say is that this team will never give up".

Despite Hudson's fighting words, the Ricardo Gareca-coached Peru are 12th in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings, while New Zealand are ranked 113th.
