Peru beats Chile 1-0 in WCup qualifying
Peru appears out of contention for next year’s World Cup in
Brazil, despite claiming a late 1-0 win over Chile in qualifying
FC Schalke winger Jefferson Farfan finally broke a scoreless
deadlock for Peru in the 86th minute to give the team a much-needed
boost up the table in South American qualifying.
Peru now has 11 points from 10 matches, still one point behind
Chile and Venezuela and a massive 12 points back of leader
Argentina. Bolivia and Paraguay trail with eight points each.
The top four clubs in South America qualify automatically for
the World Cup, while the fifth-place team faces a playoff for a
spot. Brazil as the host nation gets an automatic berth.
