From the Coach

Analysis from the coach: “The secret to our qualification was the fact that the players and all the professionals involved with the national team went about their job responsibly and with a minimum of fuss.” Paraguay coach Gerardo Martino


Making their eighth FIFA World Cup finals appearance and their fourth in a row after a brilliant qualifying campaign, Paraguay will look to shed the disappointment of a first round exit in 2006.

The best La Albirroja has ever done in the World Cup was reaching the round of sixteen at France 1998 and Korea/Japan 2002, before being knocked out by France and Germany respectively.

Paraguay is under the direction of Argentinean boss Gerardo Martino. El Tata enjoyed successful spells with Libertad and Cerro Porteño, but it was not until after taking the helm of La Albirroja in 2006 that he has enjoyed the greatest moments of his coaching career. Martino is an extremely hard-working coach, but his only weakness is his lack of International experience.

The 47-year old is a big fan of attacking football, and brings a new look to the squads traditional defensive style.

While some questioned his experience as well as this new approach, fears were quelled as the squad negotiated its way through a tough group to South Africa 2010 in record-breaking fashion.

The side lost their best player, striker Salvador Cabanas, after being shot in the head back in January in a Mexico City bar. Anytime you lose your best player to tragedy your side’s chances of winning becoming much tougher, but this squad has much more depth and plenty of internationally renowned players that can step it up in this tournament.

Players like Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz will lead the offensive punch along with Oscar Cardozo and Nelson Haedo Valdez, all of whom scored 11 goals between them during the squads qualifying campaign. Bet on Soccer at Sportsbook.com

The formidable trio was all present at Germany 2006, and I am sure they will need little reminding as to what they need to do to get into the finals in South Africa.

Other notables are Lucas Barrios who plays for Germany’s Borussia Dortmund and has scored 18 goals this season, as well as star defender Paulo da Silva.

La Albirroja allowed just 16 goals in 18 World Cup qualification matches finishing a very respectable third in South American qualifying behind Brazil and Chile.

The side broke the 30-point barrier for the first time since the current qualifying system came into being, recording ten wins, three draws and five defeats for 33 points.

The side punched their ticket to the finals in style with a 1-0 defeat of Argentina in September.

Paraguay should earn wins against New Zealand and Slovakia and will rely on their talented strikers to move on past the group stage But the Round of 16 will likely be where their road ends.
