Peru needed a victory last night. They trailed Chile and Venezuela by four points for fifth (the fifth place team in CONEMBOL faces the third place team from the AFC for a spot in Brazil) heading into Matchday 11. Argentina defeated the Venezuelans as expected, but Peru couldn’t afford to drop points at home against Chile. Thanks to Schalke’s Jefferson Farfan, they exited Estadio Nacional with three points and renewed hope. The announcers were a little excited.
