Background: INTRODUCTION: The opening match of South America Group Two in the World Cup saw a dramatic 1-1 draw between Peru and Colombia. The result gives the advantage to Peru, but the game itself was marred by violent play and a near riot. Peruvian players had to be escorted from the stadium in Bogota, Colombia, as angry fans sent down a hail of missiles.
SYNOPSIS: Peru, playing in the white shirts, were on the receiving-end of the first of many injuries during the match. And this was the most serious with the Peruvian player having to be carried from the "El Campin" pitch on a stretcher. The rough tone of the match was set, and players on both sides were fouled as the first half continued.
Colombia produced a promising move down-field ending in a goal but to their disgust it was disallowed. The ruling, - offside play.
Colombian goalkeeper, Pedro Zape watched in dismay as a Peruvian player was fouled in the penalty area, 40 minutes into the first half. Zape paced the goalmouth and made a brilliant save to the delight of the crowd.
In the second half Colombia were on the attack with strong passing. Good team work culminated in the first goal of the match. After 65 minutes Dario Herrera got a deflection off the goalposts and Colombia led one nil. Excited players raced off the field to hug team officials.
Twenty minutes later it was Peru's turn with La Rosa levelling the Scores at one all. He had only been on the field for a short time after replacing Uribe on the right wing.
After the final whistle an enraged Colombian official raced on to the field and struck the referee. He was quickly arrested but the sixty thousand-strong crowd started raining cans and bottles onto the field. The Peruvian players had to be escorted away by riot police. The winner of Group Two will join Chile, Brazil and Argentina in the World Cup finals in Madrid next year.
