Los once jugadores de Colombia que están en capilla

Uruguay no pasó del empate sin goles ante la colista Venezuela, pero suma un punto con el que llega a 28 unidades, que lo dejan a las puertas de la cita mundialista de Rusia.

Colombia procurará en Lima la clasificación a su segundo Mundial consecutivo, ante una selección peruana que también aspira a jugar el año próximo en Rusia. También le permitiría acceder al cupo si Argentina no le gana a Ecuador o si Chile le saca, al menos un empate a Brasil (en ese caso, Colombia tendrá que esperar a que Argentina no gane en Quito).

Según Mister Chip, la selección nacional clasifica en 85 de 243 posibilidades posibles, lo que hace un 34.9%.

La tabla de las Eliminatorias Sudamericanas quedó al rojo vivo luego de la disputa de la penúltima jornada, que vio a Argentina caer al sexto lugar.

Chile derrotó 2-1 a Ecuador en el estadio Monumental de Santiago, lo que le dio un respiro para la clasificación, con goles de Eduardo Vargas y Alexis Sánchez, en el minuto 22 y 85 respectivamente.

'Vamos a tener que seguir peleando, los jugadores tienen que hacer el ultimo esfuerzo con la confianza de poder competir con Brasil', dijo el argentino después del triunfo de Chile ante Ecuador por 2-1.

Argentina está sumida en un drama que se develará el martes cuando visite a Ecuador, en Quito, a las 20.30.

Argentina, quinta con 24 puntos, en zona de repesca, exhibe una ineficacia inexplicable para un seleccionado que tiene a los máximos artilleros de las tres ligas más importantes del mundo, como Messi en España, Paulo Dybala en Italia y Sergio Agüero en Inglaterra (ahora lesionado).

Si Argentina pierde contra Ecuador la esperanza será mínima, pero habrá una oportunidad para alcanzar el Repechaje.

Los paraguayos están obligados a vencer a Venezuela, e incluso eso no les asegura la clasificación ni el repechaje.
