South America: FIFA World Cup - qualifiers
Match start: 01:00 (GMT+2)
FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 will be 21st in order. Earlier, since the first championship of the World Cup that was held in 1930 had begun historical battle of the best national teams of Europe and South America.
And up to the World Cup 2010 in RSA the score on final wins was equal – 9:9. But then, due to two amazing victories of Spain (2010) and Germany (2014) football Europe not only rushed forward but as minimum up to 2022 became the leader of historical battle.
The real challenger
Three most titled teams of CONMEBOL in the history of world championships are Brazil (5 titles), Uruguay (2), Argentina (2). But now, according to the results of the nearest 17th round one of the 32nd participants of FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 can become the ¼ finalist of the last global championship – Colombia. In order to do this the team of José Pékerman has to win over Paraguay during the home battle.
James Rodríguez, Falcao, Cuadrado and others
In case they win, Los Cafeteros will increase its total score up to 29 points and regardless of result of the match Argentina-Peru they will get into 21st World Cup championship.
For forthcoming historical meeting against Paraguay José Pékerman has invited all best and most popular football players headed by two attacking half backs Juan Cuadrado (Juventus) and James Rodríguez (Bayern) and, of course, the main goalscorer of the national team Radamel Falcao (Monaco).
And what about the nearest rival? Now Paraguay has 21 points and takes only 7th line at the tournament bracket. And theoretically the red and whites still have the chances for qualification. But in front of the team of Francisco Arce there are two main challengers for the 4th and 5th places – Argentina and Chille that won’t probably lose their current positions.
Colombia – 1.40, draw – 4.35, Paraguay – 8.50;
