Colombia and Ecuador shared the points in a goalless draw on Matchday 12 of the South American 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. Despite the scoreless result, this game didn't lack drama. Here, check out the highlights of the game.
Los Cafeteros extended their unbeaten streak to eight games but they struggled to pick up victories in that span (W2 D6). La Tri, on the other hand, have slightly bounced back from a tough defeat to Venezuela on Sunday and remain in contention for a 2022 Qatar World Cup berth. Colombia could have won it at the death through Yerry Mina, but his goal was cancelled after VAR determined he touched the ball with his hand.
