Columbia's Radamel Falcao admits discussing draw with Peru's Renato Tapia

Peru vs Ecuador World Cup Qualifiers

However, Peru midfielder Renato Tapia has revealed Falcao urged them to take their foot off the gas in the final few minutes of the encounter after informing the players that the 1-1 result would suit both team's World Cup aspirations.

Falcao, who plays his club football for French Ligue 1 side Monaco, was seen in discussion with Peruvian players with his hand covering his mouth towards the end of the 1-1 draw in Lima.
