What Chile are planning after Peru's controversial draw against Colombia

Yet Peru's 1-1 draw with Colombia has attracted plenty of controversy due to what happened in the final minutes of the match.

The Monaco striker refuted claims of a pact but admitted both teams slowed the game down in the final stages.

They will face New Zealand in a two-legged tie, the victor of which will earn a spot at the World Cup.

"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]", The Telegraph quotes him as saying.

Unfortunately for the Chilean side, Brazil's actual team had no such plans, as they took care of business via a 3-0 win at home.

"But I think Peru has been a worthy rival, they fought for 90 minutes just like us".

Video footage has emerged of Peru and Colombia players apparently conspiring to fix their Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup Russia qualifier to end in a draw - a result which benefitted both sides. "They knew what the situation was in the other games", Tapia told Panamericana TV station in an interview aired on Wednesday.

Peru now face New Zealand in a two-leg play-off, hoping to make the World Cup for the first time in 36 years.

"Peru are very good, they are highly ranked and they got a great result against Argentina in qualification, but I feel, out of all of them, we can take confidence out of having to play them".

"The last game against Japan was better than the previous games (at the Confederations Cup) - we get our belief from that, knowing we can compete and bearing in mind all of those have been away", Hudson said.

"We have competed against top teams - U.S. away, Mexico away and now Japan away".

"We needed to win, them too".

New Zealand has never beaten South American opposition, with three draws and 11 losses against team from that continent, but Hudson has faith that his team can engineer an upset.
