After this report, the illusions that the group from the south replaces Ecuador remain intact and international media are already speculating how the table of positions would move.

Likewise, the northerners lost two: 1-0 with Uruguay and 3-1 with Paraguay. If FIFA decides to give up the games, the table of the tie would have a drastic change. Ecuador would fall to last place, with only 12 points. And the team that would enter the direct qualification zone for the World Cup is Chile, which would be fourth with 24 points. The Peruvian team would remain in the playoffs, with 24, but with a worse goal difference.
