World Cup 2010, Spain Vs. Paraguay: Lucas Barrios, Roque Santa Cruz Barely Miss Equalizer

Paraguay nearly drew even in the 89th minute, withe Lucas Barrios and Roque Santa Cruz testing Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas only to see the Spanish captain come-up with two answers to keep Spain ahead, 1-0.

Lucas Barrios was given a shot from the right of the penalty box at 16 yards out, his right-footed attempt fired directly at Casillas.  Casillas left the rebound in front of goal, eight yards out, allowing Roque Santa Cruz to run-on for a shot.  Casillas was able to close-down the space for Santa Cruz, saving the striker's attempt for an equalizer.

Spain remains ahead 1-0, the match now in the 95th minute.
