People Are Questioning Falcao's Conversations With Peru Players Last Night
The last round of fixtures in South America's qualifying for next summer's World Cup in Russia certainly didn't finish quietly but Radamel Falcao was making sure whatever he was saying certainly wasn't able to be picked up.
When it comes to football the World Cup is quite big business and everyone gets quite excited about being there, that is unless you support England and can see the boring failure coming from a mile off.
The scenes when Egypt qualified for the first time since 1990, despite winning the African Cup of Nations four times in that time, reminded us what getting to the competition can mean to countries.

In South America the group was so tight that any one of five teams could still find themselves in or out at the last minute with only Brazil and Uruguay sure of their place at next summer's tournament.
One of the biggest matches was Colombia and Peru and the two sides played out a draw to secure the former's place in Russia and the latter's play-off against New Zealand.
The match finished 1-1 and plenty are questioning Colombia striker Radamel Falcao's actions towards the end of the game with some suggesting he was telling Peru to play out the draw that helped both sides:
If that's what the former Chelsea and Manchester United striker was trying to tell the opposition then it seemed to work as fans took to Twitter to discuss the two sides passing it around at the back.

Tuned in to Peru v Colombia, to find them passing it amongst themselves.
I don't want gentleman's agreements, I want drama! #bbcfootball

Colombia and Peru were literally passing the ball side ways in the last 5 mins

Once Peru and Colombia figured out both were in with a tie, they literally stood around until the game ended. Happy days for all

Chile fans won't be happy with what happened last night but if they'd only lost 2-1 to Brazil then they'd have been in the play-off instead of Peru, their fate was always in their own hands.
