Group B

Paraguay vs South Africa
Paraguay controlled most of the first hour against South Africa, then switched off when they had a 2-0 lead -- and paid for it at the death.

Spain vs Paraguay
Paraguay took the lead in the first-half (again) but fell apart, after Morientes was brought on for Spain, in the second.

Slovenia vs Paraguay
Paraguay make up for the defeat against Spain by joining them in the Second Round.
