Colombia looses chance to qualify to South Africa 2010 after defeat in Uruguay


Uruguay beat Colombia 3-1 in Montevideo in a definite game in the classifiers for the World Cup. The result leaves the Colombian team languishing in eighth place in the 10-team South American Zone with just two games to go. The first four go directly to South Africa 2010 and the fifth team classifies for a Play-off to fight for the last place. Colombia is now two points behind the fifth place and will play in October against Chile and Paraguay.
