Group B Match

Paraguay vs Trinidad & Tobago

Previous Encounters:
Paraguay have played two friendlies against Trinidad & Tobago, in March 1989, and drew both games; (1:1) in Arima and (2:2) in Port of Spain.

The Match:
Paraguay were already out befroe this match but a win for Trinidad & Tobago could see the team from the Caribbean qualify for the Second round, if England beat Sweden in Cologne. However, Brent Sancho made their task harder when he headed the ball into his own net from a Paraguay free-kick.

In the 36th minute, Paraguay had a second goal disallowed.

Half-time: (1:0).

Trinidad & Tobago needed to throw everyone forward to scor at least two goals and even if they did, it might not not be enough as Sweden equalised in Köln, six minutes after the break.

Substitute Nelson Cuevas doubled the score four minutes from time, after a glorious one-two with Roque Santa Cruz on the edge of the area.

Trinidad & Tobago go home without scoring a single goal.

Final Score:
Paraguay 2 - Trinidad & Tobago 0
