Funny video of Falcao talking to all the Peruvian players to tell them what the score was in the other games and suggesting they should all be happy with a draw

Falcao covers his mouth with his hand so he can't be lip read but then talks about it after anyway Crazy



Falcao said after the game: "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)."

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. They knew what the situation was in the other games," Tapia told Panamericana TV.

"So we managed the game as we needed to... I spoke with Radamel, who told me we were both qualified (as things stood), but it's football and we play to win."

Falcao don't rate New Zealand then

I'd say that New Zealand are worse than the Scots and Welsh, but New Zealand at least managed to get in to the play offs

half a chance is being a bit optimistic?

Peru scored from an indirect free kick.  David Ospina got a hand to it LaughCry

Also worth noting that Chile objected about a Bolivia player.  They had their result upgraded from 0-0 to 3-0.  Only thing is Bolivia used the same player against Peru.  Peru had lost 2-0 but were awarded a 3-0 win.  Had Chile kept their mouth shut they'd be in the play offs and Peru would be eliminated.

if it were fixed Falcao wouldn't have been talking to them at all

i doubt very much it was "fixed" in the case of both teams pre-match had an agreement but there's no doubting what falcao was doing there, imo.

Form for this. 1978 world cup Argentina needed to beat Peru by at least 4-0.  Won 6-0.   Widely regarded as a fix.
