Tuesday saw the South American pair draw 1-1 in their final qualifier in Lima, a result that put Colombia into Russian Federation 2018 automatically while sealing Peru a spot in the inter-continental play-off against New Zealand.
The outcome means Colombia qualifies directly for the 2018 tournament in Russian Federation, while fifth-place Peru must vie for a World Cup berth with New Zealand in two matches-one at home and one away.
They will face New Zealand in a two-legged tie, the victor of which will earn a spot at the World Cup.
Peruvians celebrated, realizing that they are on the brink of qualifying for the World Cup after drawing with Colombia.
But below them are a quintet of countries separated by only two points, from Chile in third place (26) to Colombia (26), Peru (25), Argentina (25) and Paraguay (24) in seventh.
With results elsewhere going their way, players knew a 1-1 draw would see both teams progress - Colombia directly and Peru to a play-off.
