The Peruvian team did a great defensive job in the match against Colombia. Radamel Falcao, James Rodríguez, Rafael Santos Borré, Luis Díaz, the main men of the offense, tried, but could not score. Players with other demarcations even searched in front of Pedro Gallese’s goal, just as Yerry Mina did.

The Everton center-back was the protagonist of some attacking actions and in one of them he caused a penalty. In the complementary stage, when the last line of the Blanquirroja and Gallese were still doing their thing, the ‘coffee grower’ defender tried to finish off with a header, but due to Luis Abram’s restraint he fell on the grass.

In the first instance, the referee Jesús Valenzuela scored a penalty, but the assistant raised the flag to warn Mina’s advanced position. When in doubt, the VAR judges acted quickly to clear up the doubt. Thus, those in charge of technology reviewed the action from every possible angle.

“He penalized, but offside”, expresses the VAR assistant. Immediately, the principal clarified: “The decision on the court is offside”. Then, Valenzuela assured that, if the advanced position does not exist, he calls the penalty for Colombia. Meanwhile, there was a frame-by-frame analysis of all the action in the booth.

“Confirma off side”, they tell Valenzuela and, at that moment, the game continued. At the same time, the soul returned to the body of the players, the technical team and the Bicolor fans. Of course, in the VAR they marked the lines on the ground to leave evidence that Mina, despite contact with Abram, was in an illegal position.

Goal, victory and dedication

Edison Flores scored the winning goal for the Peruvian team in Colombia. After the conquest, the ‘Oreja’ left a message. “The goal means a lot to me, to my family, to the team, to Peru, to the people who didn’t believe in me, to the people who believe in the national team. They were obviously very divided, but someone told me that I turned courage into joy and this vital match for Peru was won.”.

Along the same lines, the end of the Blanquirroja expressed: “This goal is important, but more important are the three points. It doesn’t matter who scores the goal. I take it as a revenge, but it is the beautiful thing about football because when you are not well, sometimes football gives you goals and you have to celebrate “.
