Everyone is shocked as Peru midfielder reveals what Falcao told him during World Cup qualifier game
The final round of games in the South American World Cup qualifiers has raised some controversies about match fixing involving Colombia and Peru.
Radamel Falcao and his Colombian teammates were in action against Peru on Tuesday.
A place at the Russia 2018 World Cup was at stake and with both team’s drawing Falcao appeared to say something to the Peru players.
The video evidence from the game showed the Monaco man appeared to tell the opposition to calm down to ensure that they both qualified to the World Cup 2018.
A quote from Peru’s midfielder, Renato Tapia has confirmed such claims as he says the Colombians had gotten information about the results of other games being played.
“We were concentrating on the game and then in the final five minutes the Colombians approached us,” he said in an interview with Panamericana Television.
“They knew the situations from the other grounds.
“The game was managed as it had to be managed.
“I spoke with Falcao and he said to me that we were both in, so there was happiness about that.”
The 1-1 draw in Lima sees Colombia seal automatic qualification and Peru earning a playoff against New Zealand in November.
