    It's not match fixing, it's game management. Ours and Blackburn match turned out to be same.

    Even if Peru went on to win, Chile would still be out and their (Colombia - Peru)positions would be flip flopped... unless Peru went on and scored 3 .... with seconds left.
    So.. meh.

    Edit: I am assuming its GD and not head to head.
    edit 2: it is GD. So .. who cares.

    They both went for the result that guaranteed their qualification. Kind of in a grey area but not match fixing IMO. Just like us against Blackburn a while ago, we needed a draw, draw was fine with them, so we fecked around after 1-1 and didn't try to do anything and just held the ball.

    This type of talk isn't irregular in these situations.

    For how long did we pass the ball around the back in that match? It seemed like about 10 minutes from memory but in reality, it was probably just the final 2 minutes or something.

    Can't find any footage of the match.

    Two year long qualifying campaign.

    5 mins to go and you know results elsewhere are sealed.

    If Colombia scores Peru are out. If Peru scores they trade places in the playoffs.

    Makes sense to do nothing, particularly with Ospina in goal.

    Not match fixing. Both teams just have nothing else to fight for. Colombia secured qualification and Peru wants to keep the draw. It makes sense they both will be satisfied with this result and keeps it as it's.

    Match fixing means they both agreed to get a draw before the match is even played, but Colombia was leading and was about to eliminate Peru from qualification spots anyway.

    Same thing happened in Honduras Mexico last night. They covered their mouths and started speaking when they knew USA were going out.

    I couldn't watch the video with that idiot blabbering over it but I have no problem with that kind of "fixing". I'd be doing the same.

    Not ideal but never gonna stop these situations unless you find someway to stop info about results reaching players. Whether they talk about it or just take it upon themselves to do it makes no odds.

    Still pains me that City won their first title because QPR players gave up trying. It is what it is.

    Why do they cover their mouths when they're talking at the end of games? Lukaku always does it. I get why here, but not when you're talking about what you want for tea.

    Tabloids and media in general. Lukaku might say something like "We barely made it. Was scared there mate!". Can you imagine what the media would make out of that.

    It happens all the time, I remembered I once watched a WC match, both team just play for a draw to qualify to next round. There was even a moment when the four defenders were just making side-way pass on their on half for 10-15 mins straight and the opponents attackers didn't even bother to make an effort to win the ball back at all.

    Has that ever been a problem though? Seems like it's just a trend that's caught on, like snoods.

    AFAIK footballers/sportsmen are always covering their mouth when they're talking. Even when celebs are sitting in the stadium. It's private conversation. Media gets a hold of it they will rip players to shreds.

    I've never noticed it until last season. Maybe I just stopped paying attention at the end of games normally.

    Oh it's definitely an old thing. I remember being a kid playing football outside and doing it to mimic players.

    And what did he offer his co-conspirators for their cooperation in this nefarious plot?

    So Falcao goes around to Peru players and asks them not to go for the win as that would mean Peru would qualify proper. And Peru players agree saying they would rather go to play-offs than stop Columbia from qualifying.
    Or Falcao goes around threatening Peru players not to try to score, else he will score 3 more and throw Peru out, and they all get scared.

    Silly Chile played one of the most important matches in recent times and allowed Brazil to put 3 against them without reply. That should be the only thing being discussed.

    Like John Terry getting the opposition to kick the ball out after 26 minutes last year, this sort of collusion will never be acceptable to me although it obviously goes on.

    Except it didn’t qualify them both, aren’t Peru in a playoff?

    Both sides had a lot more to lose if the other scored.

    Isn't the playoff against New Zealand.. I think Peru can see them off.. But had Columbia scored , they wouldn't have had a chance for the play off too.. With Falcao and James, Columbia's there must have been some fear in the Peru side.

    Peruvians absolutely hate Chile due to them invading their country a few times. And most if not all other Latin American countries don't have much time for Chileans either.

    A draw would be win win if it denied Chile the chance to qualify.

    This deal must of happened after Brazil scored the 3rd goal because a Chile goal at 2 nil meant that Peru would be out.

    Another thing that happen in South America during these qualifiers was the Venezuelan team got some unexpected pretty women to tempt them before the Paraguay game.

    Gerrard back pass to Drogba to deny us the title was more of a crime than this.
