FALCAO CAUGHT UP IN MATCH FIXING STORM

Monaco player Radamel Falcao has been caught up in match fixing allegations during Colombia’s World Cup qualifier against Peru on Tuesday.

The Colombian striker is reportedly to have admitted discussing with Peru midfielder Renato Tapia the fact that a draw would suit both teams in the closing stages of their World Cup qualifying match on Tuesday night.

Falcao said after the game: “We knew what was happening in the other matches, we were playing with (the knowledge of) the other results and in that moment (I tried) to transmit that (to Peru).”

Tapia then said in an interview on Wednesday that the result of the game had been discussed with Falcao. However, he denied that any deal or ‘pact’ had been agreed.

Peru came from behind and equalised in a controversial fashion when Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina palmed Pablo Guerrero’s indirect free-kick into his own net, when he could have left it untouched and it would not have counted.
