  • Peru vs Ecuador World Cup Qualifiers

"Whoever we get it's a tough game, very tough, but out of all the teams we were looking at, certainly from my point of view, Peru was a team we would have liked to have played", said Hudson.

The defending Copa America champions can not point at that one result for their failure to qualify for the World Cup, though.

With Chile and Paraguay (who both lost their final games) also in contention for at least a play-off place, a draw between Colombia and Peru would have suited both teams, given that the play-off opponents are the unheralded New Zealand.

With only Brazil safely assured of their place in Russian Federation next summer, Uruguay, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Chile and Paraguay entered the final match-day with it all to gain - or lose.

Alexis Sanchez will miss the 2018 World Cup after Chile failed to quality for the tournament. The fifth placed side will face the All Whites in a playoff to make the World Cup. 2017 was their first real summer break for teams from the continent.

So Chile will be among the high-profile absentees from Russian Federation.

Peru coach Ricardo Gareca has urged the country's football fans to "keep the faith" after the Blanquirroja kept alive their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup for the first time since 1982. They must beat New Zealand in a play-off in November to go through.

Those two results put their World Cup qualification in serious jeopardy.

A loss for either side would have seen Chile - who eventually finished sixth on goal difference - overtake them for a possible spot in Russian Federation.

"I have always believed", said Hudson.

Chile's shocking failure to qualify saw Pizzi step down, accepting responsibility for the sixth-placed finish.

Although a win for Peru would have given them automatic qualification, had they conceded one more goal they would have been out altogether. "I am the one who has chosen the players, the systems and for all that, I reiterate that I assume responsibility".
