Brazil and Paraguay leave no room for doubt
New victories have defending champions and hosts commanding their groups, with the latter having same amount of points as Argentina
As days progress in Asunción, things get clearer as teams find their places in the table. Paraguay and Brazil used two solid performances to keep the head of their respective groups, although the hosts share that position with Argentina, also with six points after two matches.
The hosts had a slow beginning in their game today, and Chile took advantage of that to hit first. But in an amazing second period, Paraguay turned things around and almost finished the game with a stout 5-0 run. The strike exchange in the last period left things pretty much as they were, and the final whistle left Paraguay closer to the semifinals, and Chile virtually out of them.
Things were even clearer for Brazil, who keeps walking firmly in this CONMEBOL Qualifier to the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. The final score was 9-5, what proves that Colombia tried to be an uncomfortable opponent, but truth is that Brazil had the game all the time under control.
In the other games of the day, Perú and Uruguay clinched their first points in the competition, following the defeats in their debut in the competition yesterday. Their laudable performances, bending Venezuela and Bolivia, respectively, give them options to keep fighting for a place in semifinals.
Bolivia and Venezuela, in turn, already know that they will not be one of the teams fighting for the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Bahamas 2017 tickets.
