Gustavo Alfaro: “With a draw between Peru and Colombia we would be closer to Qatar”

Gustavo Alfaro assumed the technical direction of Ecuador in the current South American Qualifiers.

Peru and Colombia are direct rivals on date 15 of the South American Qualifiers and all the teams will be awaiting their commitment in Barranquilla. On this occasion, Gustavo Alfaro, coach of the Ecuadorian team and third in the standings, spoke of the match and said that a tie between the two would benefit them in their goal of qualifying for Qatar.

“If there are other results, like the draw between Colombia and Peru, we would be closer to Qatar. I hope I have the privilege of being in a World Cup. We are close, but now the most difficult thing is to close. We have complex games like Brazil in Quito and Peru as a visitor”, commented the strategist in an interview with Radio la Red de Argentina.

In addition, he added that getting four points on dates 15 and 16 of the World Cup Qualifiers in Asia will be enough to take his direct quota. “I think that with four points we are safe in the World Cup, or with three more points and the goal difference”. Let’s remember that the ‘Tricolor’ is currently third with 23 points after 14 dates played.
