    Another day, another draw. This is really starting to get ridiculous. Today, Italy, a team which is pretty popular in the US due to all of the people of Italian ancestry, took on Paraguay, a team most people in the US could not locate on a map. What was the result? You guessed it, a draw.

    I thought that Paraguay was poised for the upset here with an early goal to kick things off, but the team that is shaped like a boot was able to fight its way back and score, to force the time limit draw in a moderately exciting affair.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Paraguay Defender and Man of the Match Antolin Alcaraz: I want to share this prize with my colleagues, because without them you're nothing. For the goal I was fortunate enough to get in ahead of the defender and after that I just needed to nod it in. It was an incredible feeling to score a goal that I'll always remember very fondly.

    • Paraguay Coach Gerardo Martino: We're really pleased to have gone toe-to-toe with the reigning world champions and, above and beyond the result, we're very satisfied with our performance, particularly as it's the start of the World Cup. We couldn't move the ball around accurately because of the way our opponents play, but we also made life difficult for them.

    • Italy Coach Marcello Lippi: I'm happy because we played as a team, but it's a shame not to have won because we deserved to. By the end our opponents had handed us control and they didn't create any danger in the second period, we didn't even let them have a single shot on goal. We still have to improve, however.
