The score was level at 1-1 in the 64th minute when a ball across the face of goal caught Mina in the chest and bounced in and though Los Cafeteros had chances to grab an important point, they couldn't find the breakthrough in the final 25 minutes.
Peru had led 1-0 at half-time thanks to Sergio Peña's 17th-minute strike, a crisp effort past the goalkeeper after the ball had come back to him off the post.
However, Colombia levelled eight minutes into the second half from the penalty spot after Pedro Gallese had brought down Miguel Borja and the striker converted emphatically from 12 yards.
Despite the defeat, Colombia remain second in Group B but have played a game more than all the other four teams bar Venezuela. Nevertheless, with four of five teams from the group progressing to the next round, they stand a good chance of going through even if they lose their final group match to leaders Brazil.

What has that comment got to do with the article about Yerry Mina and Colombia?

Colombia still needs only one more point to qualify for the knockout round, so they're OK for the moment, but if they don't pull their shit together quickly and start scoring goals, Yerry's going to be watching the WC on TV next year.
Wednesday night's Brazil/Colombia game featuring Mina vs. Richarlison should be interesting. 1am Thursday for you folks in the UK.

I've lived in Colombia since 2008 and the ONLY time I've seen any of the white stuff is in a hostel, being taken by tourists.
How about we talk about football for a change? It wasn't a particularly good match, Colombia lacked creativity, needed someone like James maybe?
As for the own goal, not a lot he could have done about it.

They have the best kit in world football too.
