On the other hand, this was the sixth defeat for Paraguay in the tournament.

The Paraguayan team looked horribly out of form in the match. In the first half, the Colombian team got quite a few goal scoring opportunities, but, neither of those chances was capitalized on by the Colombian players. The first half went goalless. The Colombian team managed to take the lead in the 7th minute of the second half with the goal of Radamel Falcao. It was a fine left footed strike by the striker of Atletico De Madrid and the ball went straight into the far corner of the net.

The lead of Colombia was doubled towards the end of that match. It was Falcao again who found the net for Colombia. After that, there was not much time left in the game and it was very hard for Paraguay to make a comeback.

The Colombian team will play its next World Cup qualifying match against Bolivia.
