Paraguay took a vital victory against a lost Venezuela

A goal by Gastón Giménez and a penalty stopped by goalkeeper Antony Silva in the final stretch of the game gave this Tuesday Paraguay a 1-0 away victory against Venezuela, on the second day of the South American qualifier for the Qatar-2022 World Cup.

Giménez scored in the 85th minute at the Metropolitan Stadium of Mérida by shooting goalkeeper Wuilker Faríñez at will after a cross behind Alberto Espínola, finally breaking the ice in a match in which both teams had difficulty generating danger with very cold offenses.

The hosts hoped to save at least one point when the referee sentenced a penalty with the regulation time fulfilled, at 90 + 3 ‘, but the shot from twelve steps by Yangel Herrera, who had previously had a score disallowed by a head butt that, with little luck, hit him in the arm, was stopped by Silva.

Venezuela came from losing 3-0 to Colombia in Barranquilla in the debut of their new coach, the Portuguese José Peseiro, while Paraguay had started with a 2-2 draw with Peru in Asunción.

The posts shake

Peseiro revolutionized the vinotinto starting eleven looking to leave behind last Friday’s disappointing premiere. Rómulo Otero, a new Corinthians signing, had space in the creation area, while Cristian Cásseres Jr, NY Red Bulls tab, joined as support for Tomás Rincón and Yangel Herrera in the first line of flyers.

However, Despite the changes, it was Paraguay the team that took the initiative.

The crossbar and a slap from Wuilker Faríñez they prevented homeowners from coming to rest at a disadvantage.

A left-footed shot from Giménez sent the ball to the post in the 9th minute and a free kick from Ángel Romero, on the 25th, he forced Faríñez to fly to clear.

Romero had received from his coach, the Argentine Eduardo Berizzo, the award of ownership after having scored two goals by going from the bench in the previous World Cup match.

Venezuela, although shy, had its chance through one of Otero’s greatest virtues: the power and effect of his shots at still ball. A free throw of his, in the 33rd, crashed into the post.

VAR and end of infarction

Neither Venezuela nor Paraguay were hurt until a play came prepared in a corner.

At minute 65, Cásseres and Otero went into action within the area after the service and the latter launched an air center that Herrera successfully connected. The Venezuelan midfielder was celebrating his goal when the main judge, Colombian Andrés Rojas, received the notice from the video referee team.

The sphere had hit an arm of the Granada steering wheel, so the goal was canceled.

This seemed to warm Venezuela and Herrera, again, and Sergio Córdova threatened; but Paraguay froze those spirits by taking advantage of a serious defensive oversight on the left flank of Peseiro’s men. Roberto Rosales had been hit and this forced the Portuguese to reorganize the defense.

Right where Rosales was moving, Espínola’s projection ended with Giménez’s goal, a 5 that rose as if it were a 9.

Everything seemed lost for the locals, but Rojas whistled a penalty when the central defender Gustavo Gómez displaced Rolf Feltscher with his body.

Herrera charged trying to find revenge and what he found was Silva, who covered by throwing himself to his left hand. The goalkeeper had entered the line-up due to the inconvenience of the usual Roberto Fernández.

On the next double date of qualifying for Qatar 2022, in November, Venezuela will face Brazil and Chile. Paraguay will do the same against Argentina and Bolivia.
