chile needs colombia to score and colombia is very happy with the draw no incentive to attack

the goalkeepers always go up for the corners at the end in that type of situation. at that point, had CHile scored they would have qualified for the play off, whereas it was irrelevant whether they lose 2-0 or 3-0

That was not the team we were watching last year.

Chile's run was nice while it lasted.

Funny story admin - a fair while back Bolivia were found to have fielded an ineligible player Nelson Cabrera in 2 matches against Chile and Peru Nelson Cabrera was ineligible because he once played for Paraguay some years before.

The match Bolivia drew against Chile was later awarded to Chile, giving Chile a 2 point gain.

The match where Bolivia beat Peru was awarded to Peru, giving Peru a 3 point gain.

At the time it seemed good news for Chile since it looked at the time like Ecuador or someone else would be their qualification rival. Peru's points didn't seem like they would matter as they were so far back. In fact had they not got those points they would likely have given up, they were so far back, but instead they went on a winning streak.

As it turns out had FIFA decided to allow Cabrera to play, and assuming all other results had been the same (which, to be fair, is debatable) Peru would be out and Chile would be in the playoff.

Although I think where Chile blew it is losing twice against Paraguay which is an average team.

Very close in the end though. Chile could have afforded to lose by 1 goal to Brazil and still qualified, the first goal was decisive but if they'd only known they could afford to lose by 1 goal they wouldn't have thrown men forwarded and conceded the 2nd goal on a counter attack. I don't really blame them though, they weren't to know Paraguay were going to lose at home to Venezuela.

Well, not bad in general – politicians will not be able to distract people with achievements in sports.

yea, I am not a fan of the FIFA qualification system. Truly ridiculous system for selecting teams.

It's certainly not the most perfect system but I have the feeling from your posts that you don't fully understand how the system works? Maybe I'm wrong - what is ridiculous about it?
