World Cup 2010, Paraguay Vs. Japan: Second Half Ends Scoreless, Match Headed For Extra Time

A tactical match that has seen slight adjustments by each side yield a relatively uneventful second half will go to extra time with Japan and Paraguay scoreless.

Paraguay has still held more possession but has limited the counter attacking opportunities given Japan in the first half.  Japan has responded by bringing on more attack-minded personnel, but it has been to no avail.  The match remains scoreless, with the teams having combined for five shots on goal.

The teams will now play a 30 minute extra period.  If the sides are still tied afterward, Japan and Paraguay will engage in the tournament's first penalty shoot-out.

Each team has one substitution remaining.
