HT: USA holding up Paraguay’s march to quarter-finals

It is 1-1 at half-time in tonight’s opening game between Paraguay and the US of A in Barinas. Barreto opened Paraguay’s account in the 30th minute, rounding off a series of slick passes in the area by sliding the ball past Kasey Keller.

Paraguay had already hit the post from a corner but the goal was hard on the US who had carved out the clearer chances. Clark finally made one count for the USA when he stroked home a knockdown from the edge of the area five minutes before half-time in what has been an attractive game with both sides looking to get forward.

A win for Paraguay guarantees them a slot in the quarter finals following their 5-0 demolition of Colombia in their opening game. The US need a win to reactivate their campaign following their 4-1 loss to Argentina.
