Radamel Falcao Denies Colombia 'Pact' with Peru in World Cup Qualifier

Radamel Falcao Denies Colombia 'Pact' with Peru in World Cup Qualifier

Not that the draw would have suited Peru, if they had won they would have gone through to the World Cup automatically.

In fantastic footage caught on camera, Colombia captain and Monaco striker Radamel Falcao can be seen having intense discussions with several Peruvian players with many now suggesting that the 31-year-old was explaining that a draw would qualify both sides.

Tapia also admitted in an interview on Wednesday that he had discussed the result of the game with Falcao but denied that any deal had been brokered on the pitch.

"In the last five minutes, the Colombians approached us".

Colombia and Peru's alleged pact must have infuriated Chile, who were heading for Russian Federation until Peru's 76th minute equaliser.

"So we managed the game as we needed to".

"They knew the situations from the other grounds".

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

The former Manchester United and Chelsea man was seen covering his mouth and speaking animatedly to some of the Peru players, while appearing to gently push one player over to his nearby team-mates to pass on a message.

They needed to beat Brazil in their final group clash to ensure passage to the World Cup, but they ended up losing 3-0 in Sao Paulo, the third defeat they suffered in their final four qualifiers. "What pact? That's speculation", Solano added.

What do you make of what happened between Falcao and Peru's players?

It's unlikely that Federation Internationale de Football Association will look into the matter.

But now they face New Zealand in a tricky two-legged intercontinental play-off in a bid to make it to Russian Federation.

"We have to enjoy this because we knew how to handle every moment, defiant and patient when it was necessary, overcoming injuries or poor performance".
