Game over? Game probably over. Paragauy's defence, which neither Brazil nor Venezuela succeeded in penetrating in previous rounds, makes an absolutely shambolic error right at the end of the first half, Nestor Ortigoza allowing himself to be tackled with no cover near the edge of the penalty box.That's bad news when you're playing against a team with a front line the calibre of Uruguay's.
Three light blue shirts pounce, and the ball is eventually fed to Diego Forlan on the right and in acres of space. Forlan had previously missed a fairly routine one on one with Justo Villar, but there wasn't a whole lot that the goalkeeper could do about this shot, rifled straight into the back of the net to make it 2-0. Paraguay were barely threatening down by just one, and their opponents now look like they've got this thing well and truly in the bag. Urguay for Copa America 2011 champions, then? It wouldn't be undeserved.
