The USA is through to the quarter-finals. They will next play either England or Japan in Goa. On current form, one can reasonably see the Americans in the last four. Their stunning offensive display has already marked them out as one of the most dangerous teams in this tournament. As for Paraguay, just like its coach Morinigo had feared, the defence fell away. A bad defeat for a team which had played a couple of entertaining matches in the group stage. But on today's evidence, Paraguay will not be missed.
