Paraguay register 3-1 win

Paraguay register 3-1 win”

Paraguay continued to shine and recorded their third win on the trot when they thrashed a struggling Turkey 3-1 in a Group B match of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup here today.With this win, the South American side topped the pool with nine points.

The South American team registered its third consecutive victory and sealed the top spot.

Giovanni Bogado (41st min), Fernando Cardozo (43rd) and Antonio Galeano (61st) were on target to ensure they topped the group with an all-win record. Earlier, they had defeated Mali, one of the title contenders 3-2, and New Zealand 4-2, at the DY Patil stadium.

It hadn't begun well for the side, though, as it squandered a penalty kick in the second minute, the culprit being its hero in the last match - Anibal Vega.

Bouyed by the reprieve, Turkey settled down after the initial hesitancy. Bogado picked his spot in the top left hand corner and curled a free-kick in the 41st minute; Cardozo doubled the lead two minutes later by scrambling the ball low to the goalpost's right-hand corner.

However, good teams have a number of options to open up the opposition.

Vega (75th, 78th) scored in quick succession late in the second half to boost Paraguay after a disciplined and physically tough New Zealand made the South Americans sweat for most of the game. On a cross from Blas Aroma, Cardozo displayed exceptional skills and flicked the ball with his left foot, which went past the goalie.

With no goals to show as reward for efforts in the first half, the heat was on Turkey in the second session.
