Colombia secure ticket to India

Colombia have won South America’s fourth and final qualification berth for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017.

Juan Vidal scored the winner as Colombia came from behind for a 2-1 victory over Paraguay on the final matchday on Sunday.

That result left Venezuela and Ecuador out of the reckoning in the six-team final-stage.

Brazil were crowned continental champions with a stunning 5-0 final-round win over Chile.

Brazil, Chile and Paraguay secured passage to India in Thursday’s penultimate round.

The first FIFA tournament to be held in the world’s second most populous nation will be held 6-28 October.
