Jose Pekerman's future as Colombia manager is reportedly in doubt as two other candidates have been lined up to replace him.

Colombia will consider sacking manager Jose Pekerman following their World Cup exit at the hands of England, according to a report.

The South American side finished top of Group H after recovering from an opening-game defeat, only to then come unstuck at the first knockout-stage hurdle.

England prevailed 4-3 on penalties at the Spartak Stadium on Tuesday night after the match finished 1-1 at the end of 120 minutes.

According to The Mirror, Pekerman could pay the price as his job is now at risk following six years in charge, with Los Cafeteros falling short of their quarter-final finish from Brazil 2014.

Ricardo Gareca is said to have been lined up as a potential replacement after stepping down as Peru coach earlier in the tournament, while Mexico chief Juan Carlos Osorio may also be in contention.
