Opponent Reveals What Radamel Falcao Told Him Amid Match-Fixing Allegations

With former Manchester United forward Radamel Falcao having found himself in the middle of match-fixing allegations after Colombia's final 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Wednesday, a Peru player has now revealed what the Colombian told him on the pitch.

The Monaco striker was seen chatting to opposition players with a few minutes left in Colombia's clash against Peru.

The game was tied at the time, while Chile were losing to Brazil, which meant that Colombia would qualify for the 2018 World Cup as the fourth-placed team in the South American qualification table, while Peru booked the playoff spot and Copa America champions Chile missed out.

With Falcao having since been accused of match-fixing, Peru midfielder Renato Tapia has now revealed what the former United striker told him on the pitch.

"We were focused on the game and then in the final five minutes the Colombians approached us," he told Panamericana Television, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

"They knew the situations from the other grounds. The game was managed as it had to be managed.

"I spoke with Falcao and he said to me that we were both in, so there was happiness about that."

Do you think Colombia and Peru agreed to play out the draw in order not to risk their World Cup qualification? Have your say in the comments section below.

If the results of the game where organised to benefit others, that's fixing and money does not need to be involved as long as the outcomes where influenced.

It is match fixing cows.......peru or colombia would have went for glory if they didn't know of the result of chile. Ban these cows you play to win not convince others to take it easy. Fair play isn't about letting others get dumped out in the meantime. If brazil wanted argentina out they would have lost against chile on purpose
