World Cup: Falcao Admits Negotiating A Draw With Peru's Renato Tapia

Colombia and Monaco striker Radamel Falcao has come out to say that he and Peru midfielder Renato Tapia spoke about what both teams needed to qualify for the World Cup during Tuesday's game.
Falcao was criticised for appearing to inform the Peru players that they did not need to attempt to score a winning goal as the 1-1 scoreline would see Colombia progress to Russia and Peru go into the play-offs. No further goals came, and that scenario played out with Peru now going on to play New Zealand over two games for a place in the finals.
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.”
