Battle of the Guays
In the Copa América final, Uruguay is up 2-0 at the half on Paraguay on a nice strike from Forlán and a deflection from Suárez. This makes Paraguay unlikely to triumph, which is fair given that they have yet to win a game outright, advancing twice on PKs after three ties in the group stage. I was thinking that a Paraguay win in PKs today might be enough to force Fifa into reconsidering overtime (personally, I like the idea of dropping a player every five minutes following the initial extra time), but then again, the case for goal-line technology couldn't be more obvious following England-Germany in South Africa, and it's nowhere near becoming a reality.
