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.

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

Well, Well, thank god that I didnt bet in this game...
They need Gattuso, Pirlo and Camoranesi in their line-up..
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 cant believe that Italy is the actual champion... -.-
What a disappointment...
And on a happier note and since this is the World Cup thread….
So cute and cool at the same time.

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
