To be honest, I just wanted to get in first with the thread title, after the astonishing amount of man-love that was flying around on the Italy vs Paraguay thread.

The press down here are making a lot of the fact that South America's teams have played seven matches between them and have yet to lose (5 wins, 2 draws - against the 2006 finalists).

As far as I can see Gerardo Martino hasn't announced the Paraguayan team yet, but I'm sure they'll all be dreamy. Look out for left back Claudio Morel Rodríguez, who might be playing with a point to prove - he's just heard his Boca Juniors contract won't be extended beyond the 30th of this month.

¡Vamos Albirroja!

But how hot is he?

So have Slovakia-Paraguay given us the longest national anthem combo in the tournament?

Marek Hamsik, not hot.

The intro to Paraguay's anthem touched me once again. They also appear to have some kind of Jah Rasta Lion on the back collar of their shirts.

And Roque Santa Cruz is HOT!

No Tacuara, *sob*

Barrios, Valdez and Santa Cruz play in an attacking (and gorgeous (except for Valdez)) trident.

I'm going for Slovakia in this one. My support is based on the following crucial factors:

1. My friend's wife is Slovakian; she's really friendly and makes a lovely potato bake thing. I'm fairly certain that's why he married her. It's mint (always good with spuds, mint).
2. About a year ago, I saw the Slovakian team milling around outside Lillywhites, looking miserable and bored.
3. The SBS commentator has just described Paraguay as 'dangerous floaters' which is a mental image I could have done without as I was digesting my dinner.
4. Their strip looks a bit like Swindon's away kit.

Emptiest stadium yet?

Terrible turn-out for this game. County cricket-esque.

This is one game where I dont care who wins. Just hoping for a good game... so far so good.

John Harkes pronouncing 'Roque' like it's French.

In the looks dept., Santa Cruz and Skrtel are like matter vs. anti-matter. They should maybe not get too close to each other.

The BBC stream has just slipped back in time about three minutes, which is not only irritating but highly unsettling.

Paraguay had the best of the opening 15 minutes, but Slovakia have twice got into good wide positions but spooned crosses out of play. European team, wearing all white, barely had a touch, surrendering possession cheaply, fucking fluffing up the basics? It's unheard of.

THis has been a great game so far, open, positive from Paraguay.

Bah.

That's a bloody lovely finish. Thoroughly deserved.
