I think 6 or 7 is good enough for me, not 8. I don't agree with your comparison with Peru against those sides. We've played the USA, Costa Rica, South Korea, and Japan since 2010 and only the USA have been able to beat us. Of course you shouldn't read much into those friendlies but we have a better squad overall than a lot of those teams you mentioned with only South Korea and maybe Costa Rica having an edge on paper. I think a lot of South Americans can agree that we're not the best continent, that would be Europe. What we don't agree is that CONCACAF is near our level, which they are not. No one said that we are better than UEFA. Europe wins world cups, and while we are capable of winning it, we don't do it. And any South American side except Bolivia are capable of making it through their group in the WC. Depending on their group of course. If Peru got put in place of Colombia in group C with Greece, Japan and Ivory Coast, I'm confident we would have made it through. In Group B in place of Chile, Spain, Netherlands and Australia, I'm not so confident.
