Paraguay v New Zealand World Cup 2010
June 24, 2010 - Kick off 15.00 GMT
It appears as though the bookmakers have overreacted to New Zealand‘s impressive draws against Slovakia and Italy. While the All Whites did tremendously well to take a point from both their Group F matches, it‘s unlikely that they can manage this a third time against a well-drilled Paraguayan team who performed wonderfully to beat Slovakia 2-0. Gerardo Martino‘s team created several chances and the expert finishes of Enrique Vera and Cristian Riveros illustrates that this team aren‘t over-reliant on their forwards when it comes to scoring goals.
Paraguay will want to make certain of top spot and we should remember that their opponents have modest players, with only Ryan Nelsen good enough to grace the English Premier League. While former Fulham midfielder Simon Elliott has been very clever on the ball in South Africa, the south Americans should deal with the attacking threat of Rory Fallon and Shane Smeltz.
The dream is set to end for New Zealand and the best odds for the Paraguay win is 1.50 with bet365.
