Copa America Final 2011, Uruguay Vs. Paraguay: And Now This Game Is Terrible

It's 1-0 to Uruguay in the 2011 Copa America final, and now this game will be terrible. Why? Because Uruguay don't need to score again and, barring a miracle, Paraguay are incapable of scoring. This means that the game is being played entirely in midfield and there are about 47 fouls committed a minute (that's an estimate, so don't hold me to that one). Since Suarez's goal, the only interesting moments have been the yellow cards handed out to Victor Caceres, Diego Perez, Martin Caceres and Maxi Perriera.

In other words, the game has been monumentally boring. This is what happens when one team tries to counterattack against a team that can't attack. Of course, as I write that, Diego Forlan attempts to prove me wrong with a breakaway chance, racing up the centre to challenge Justo Villar in the Paraguay net. It is, unsurprisingly, kept out, but Uruguay have already threatened from corners and now they've got another one... which comes to nothing. Of course.
