In 1998 Paraguay qualified for the round of 16 and lost to eventual World Cup champions France. In 2002 it was Germany that ended the dream. In 2010, La Albirroja lost in the quarterfinals to the eventual World Cup Champions Spain. This is a testament to the great football that Paraguay is currently playing. Only in 2006, did the team not advance past the first round. One has to wonder how far the team would advance, had they not drawn groups with such fierce opponents. We’re four years from the next one and I am already excited and thinking about attending matches in Brazil!

Congratulations to Paraguay! The current news is that Tata Martino will not return to head the team to the 2014 World Cup, but I’m sure whomever takes over the helm will have a crop of young eager players ready to make it to the next level! Let’s go Paraguay, FINALS IN 2014!

Fabulous job. Especially when one considers the hit the team took in Mexico by a bullet to one of the leaders in the qualifyig run. One wonders how they would have fared with him in the final qualifiers for a possible higher seed and against Spain in the knockout phase.
