    In the SA qualifiers, if I remember correctly, Paraguay was tied in second place with Chile with 33 points. It was first Brazil, then Chile, then Paraguay, then Argentina (with 28 points).

    Even if Italy is the strongest team, I still think Paraguay will be a worthy opponent of the defending champions.

    I guess doing better than argentina is good considering maradona's tactical genius.... Oh, wait....I don't think paraguay is significantly different from the average in south america in general... At least IMO there is not a significant difference between colombia, uruguay, chile, ecuador, paraguay and maybe venezuela.....

    Believe me, they are a hard team. They are way better than Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, etc, etc.. Am sure that you saw Francia-Uruguay, that was a boring match IMO.

    In South America, Paraguay's style is very similar to Italy. They are a defensive team that use fast counterattacks

    Well, I guess paraguay is usually the one that follows brasil and argentina... Although, if we were to put them in tiers, I would not place them along with brasil and argentina (who under normal circumstances are easily very realistic candidates to win the WC), I don't think paraguay has a realistic shot at winning the cup, hence I usually think of them of being just marginally better than the mediocre teams in SA.

    Oh no no... I dont think that they have a chance to win this cup of course, and I dont think that they will win this game against Italy...

    I'm just saying that this will be a very interesting game, and will not be like the game of Germany vs Australia.

    Italy will win 2x1

    Ôn that much I agree lol... Not sure what to think about the final scoring though, I initially thought italy would win 2-0 but I have been having discussions and people around me have leaned towards a tie (0-0)... I want italy to win though...

    Fail, SA qualifiers are just called SA qualifiers. Copa America would be the equivalent of the Eurocup.

    Paraguay is not weak, they're like Italy. Their football is ugly as shit but they get results. Like what they're getting right now.

    Watch out for chile, they will be underestimated and they have some technical players.

    Wigan has done a great transfer. I know the scorer of Paraguay. He's the defender who played three years for my team. I don't agree that they called him a man-on-man defender, he's the defender that plays a lot

    Thank you for correcting that and for fixing my terrible mistake and huge misunderstanding. Either way, both in the Copa America and in the SA qualifiers Paraguay did play well and the results they got are proof of that.

    So the first time has ended and Paraguay is winning…the next half of the game will be even more aggressive...I wonder what team will the next one to score a goal...

    Who cares who's the best? Italy has the most handsome players in this cup!!!

    OK OK, seriously, who changes the goalkeeper in halftime when he is not injured? Odd. Well, maybe he got injured during heating up for second half...
    Hard to guess the score. I will bet on a tie: 1 X 1

    I’m happy that Paraguay didn’t lose horribly against Italy, played well and showed that they are actually a team that shouldn’t be underestimated. I was sad that Villar’s mistake cost his team the opportunity of actually winning the game. But good Paraguay, you did well, at least IMHO.

    And on a happier note and since this is the World Cup thread….

    So cute and cool at the same time.

    It didn't surprise me...

    1. Pirlo is injured and imo he is a key player
    2. In Brussels Italy was nothing in a friendly match
    3. In Switzerland Italy was close to nothing in a friendly match

    furthermore Paraguay did quite good in the South-American preliminaries. A lot of people are overestimating Italy. I think they have a chance to get in the second round but they'll definitely won't make it further
