Soccer-Falcao rescues point for Colombia in 2-2 draw with Chile

In this news, we discuss the Soccer-Falcao rescues point for Colombia in 2-2 draw with Chile.

Colombian Radamel Falcao came off the bench to score an equalizer in a 2-2 draw with Chile in their World Cup qualifier in Santiago on Tuesday. Jefferson Lerma put Colombia in the lead after seven minutes when he took advantage of poor marking to fly to the far post and come home on a deep cross from the right.

A penalty from Arturo Vidal after 38 minutes and an opportunistic goal from Alexis Sanchez three minutes before half-time then put Chile in charge. But Falcao was there in a packed penalty area to cut a Johan Mojica shot into the net and give Colombia a deserved share of the points.

Chile, who conceded a late goal against Uruguay to lose their opener 2-1, are on one point alongside Peru in the South American 10-team group, ahead of only Venezuela and Bolivia. The next round of matches will be November 12-17, with Chile at home against Peru and then away in Venezuela. Colombia welcomes Uruguay and then travels to face Ecuador.
