This result guarantees that the team led by Hector Cardenas will finish among the top four places that grant a place to the World Cup in Indonesia, which will be held between May 20 and June 11. Colombia, with six points in three outings, thus joins Brazil and Uruguay, who lead the table with a perfect score of nine points in the first three rounds and had already secured their ticket. Neither Venezuela (2 points) nor Ecuador (1 point), with only one game to go, can catch up with the hosts in the table. Nor Argentina, eliminated in the qualifying round and six times world champion under 20.
