Paraguay continues to lead Group F, having gone into halftime drawn 0-0 with New Zealand, who would be out of the tournament if results hold despite going undefeated.
New Zealand is giving the Paraguayan the same troubles they posed Slovakia and Italy, playing the group leaders even through the first 45. The All Whites have only have 31 percent of the possession but have limited their opponents to one shot on goal.
That shot came from Nelson Valdez in the 35th minute from around the arc, saved by Mark Paston.
Gerardo Martino has again gone with his 4-3-3 personnel, though Nelson Valdez is playing wide left, with the set-up masking as a 4-4-2 for much of the half.
