Copa America 2011 Quarterfinals, Brazil Vs. Paraguay: Penalty Shootout

Well, it's just what Brazil wouldn't want now: A penalty shootout. Paraguay, on the other hand, are presumably pretty happy about this - they've got a 50/50 chance of advancing out of a quarterfinal where they were thoroughly overmatched by their opponents. Can Justo Villar keep his streak of ridiculously good saves going? Will Julio Cesar be able to stay focused after having virtually nothing to do all game? Who'll be the goat, and who'll be the heroes?

Penalty shootouts are at once ridiculous and the most tense aspects of the game of football. This particular one is for a place in the Copa America semi-finals. Let's see what happens.

Elano (BRA): Misses, high left.
Edgar Baretto (PAR): Misses, low left.
Thiago Silva (BRA): Saved, low right.
Marcelo Estigarribia (PAR): Scores, high middle.
Andre Santos (BRA): Misses, high middle.
Cristian Riveros (PAR): Scores, high middle.
Fred (BRA): Misses, low left.
