Following Peru's games against New Zealand the draw for the group stages will take place on Friday, December 1 at the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow.
In incredible footage caught on camera, Colombia captain and Monaco striker Radamel Falcao can be seen having intense discussions with several Peruvian players with many now suggesting that the 31-year-old was explaining that a draw would qualify both sides.
Peru equalised in the match through national hero Pablo Guerrero in the 76 minute, presenting both sides with a favourable tied scoreline.
After Falcao's message was passed around the team, the Peru players played out the final minute of the match passing the ball around the defence before the referee blew the final whistle.
Fired up from their late goal, Peru players continued an energetic final flourish to the game, only for Falcao to engage in a odd brief exchange with several members of his opposition.
Chile's 3-0 loss in Brazil meant the South American champions miss out on Russian Federation due to goal difference.
Former Newcastle winger Nolberto Solano said: "We needed to win, them too. They knew what the situation was in the other games", Tapia told Panamericana TV station in an interview aired on Wednesday.
Falcao said: "We knew what was happening in the other matches, we were playing with [knowledge of] other results and in that moment [I tried] to transmit that".
At the end of a thrilling, unpredictable South American qualifying campaign, Colombia are in the World Cup and Peru are two games away from joining them.
