How Colombia can be seeded at the World Cup finals for Russia 2018

Colombia are in one of the automatic qualifying positions for the World Cup, so know victory in their remaining qualifier will take them to Russia. But defeat to Paraguay on Thursday night means they now have little chance of being seeded.

Russia will be seeded as hosts, and joined by the top seven qualifiers based upon the October FIFA World Ranking, which is published after the next round of qualifiers.

They can now get no more than 1,180 ranking points, which means they will be at least 13th...

South American World Cup qualifying - how Colombia can make it to Russia

Radamel Falcao
Radamel Falcao and Colombia must win at least one game to ensure they qualify for Russia.

The top four teams qualify directly with the fifth facing New Zealand for a place in the finals.

3. Colombia, 26 points (h-Paraguay, a-Peru)

Road to World Cup: Brazil, Colombia on track, Argentina wobble, Chile panic

Brazil and Colombia settled for a draw that didn't hurt either side on the road to Russia 2018.

After another thrilling night of World Cup qualification in South America, Tim Vickery recaps the state of play in CONMEBOL.

Brazil, Colombia share the spoils

Brazil may have lost their 100 percent record in World Cup qualification under coach Tite, but they had plenty of reasons to be satisfied with a 1-1 draw away to Colombia on Tuesday.

Jose Pekerman, Colombia face big challenges in qualifying for Russia

As the focus temporarily switches from club to national team football, Colombia are an intriguing team to watch.

The 2014 World Cup, said their Argentine coach Jose Pekerman, would mark the moment when Colombian football took a definitive place at the game's top table.

They unearthed the star of the tournament in James Rodriguez and reached the quarterfinals for the first time. These days, Los Cafeteros have the potential to fly even higher.

First, of course, they have to qualify for Russia, and...

Tottenham signing Davinson Sanchez, a work in progress but a quick riser

Paolo Bandini and the FC crew react to Tottenham's signing of Davinson Sanchez and discuss the options he gives Pochettino.

Things have all happened very quickly in the career of new Tottenham signing Davinson Sanchez.

Just two years ago the 21-year-old centre-back was not even a first-team player with his Colombian club, Atletico Nacional of Medellin. At the end of 2015, after winning the domestic title, Nacional sold Oscar Murillo to Mexican club Pachuca, and Sanchez got his chance.

The club knew they had a promising player on their hands. Sanchez had looked good for Colombia at Under-20 level. He...

Argentina and Colombia finding form at the right time, Uruguay slipping

Argentina head coach Jorge Sampaoli is pleased with the way Mauro Icardi has fit in with the team.

Brazil's charge to secure World Cup qualification with four rounds still to go can be explained in two ways.

One factor has been their own excellence, finding under their coach, Tite, a collective idea of play which has been bringing the best out of their individual talents.

The other explanation is the weakness of the opposition.The overall standard of the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers has been disappointing. It is a gruelling competition, and no one is able to maintain consistency over the full...
