Peru gets fully into the fight after assaulting Barranquilla

MADRID, Jan. 29 (.) –

The Peruvian team won three gold points on their visit to Colombia (0-1) thanks to a last goal by Edison Flores, who decided with a left footed shot, five minutes from the end, the match of day 15 of the qualifiers South American for the World Cup, played this Friday at the Roberto Meléndez Metropolitan Stadium.

Ricardo Gareca’s team turned the classification upside down after surprising an aimless Colombia. If Peru gets into the third place; the coffee growers accumulate four games without winning and occupy the sixth position, without a ticket for Qatar 2022.

Colombia tried to take the initiative with James Rodríguez in midfield and Radamel Falcao in attack -both starters- but the Peruvians did not resist without excessive complications. In the second half, the clearest play before the goal was a possible penalty on Yerry Mina.

The Colombian center-back, ex-Barça, was blocked by a rival when trying to finish off a centered ball into the area. The referee pointed to the penalty spot but the linesman immediately corrected his decision. The Metropolitan saw how the illusion vanished no matter how much Cuadrado, another of the most outstanding, tried his luck with long shots.

And when everything pointed to a goalless draw, the only counterattack of the match appeared and the goal from Peru. Cristian Cueva drew a magnificent pass for Flores to solve with power. The redheads got away with it and take a giant step to get closer to the next World Cup ticket.
