ñiga after an odd deflection had put Zuñiga through. Colombia converted for the 1-0 lead. Colombia were so superior in the first half that Peru chose to make a tactical double substitution at the half hour mark. This was still not enough to evade a second blow. In the final minute of the half, Pablo Armero swung in a cross from the left flank that landed in the six-yard box. Teofilo Gutierrez provided the finish while losing his balance, and the scoreboard read 2-0 at halftime in favor of the Cafeteros.
In the second half, Colombia decided to bunker down and keep a clean sheet. Peru started decently but quickly faded. Carlos Zambrano, a Peruvian defender, received a second yellow card in minute 70, leaving Peru down a man for the final twenty minutes. Colombia did not press for a third, as they were content with the scoreline. Colombia win 2-0.
