South America is a big party right about now as almost their entire east coast has advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

It was a game of few chances, Paraguay’s two best came from close range, but excellent goalkeeping by Japan’s Kawashima thwarted both those opportunities. Paraguay’s other chance was pushed wide right by Roque Santa Cruz.

Japan had few chances, but their best came in the 22nd minute when a poor clear by the Paraguayan defense fell to the feet of Daisuke Matsui and led to a 25 yard shot that hit off the bar. The game went into extra time and as the seconds wore on the players were visibly fatigued and it seemed as if they were expecting the game to head into penalties.

Paraguay moves on to face Spain. In all honesty I don’t think Paraguay has much of a realistic shot against the Spanish side. Spain have an incredible form and it would take a miracle of sorts for Paraguay to skip their way past either of the them. But stranger things have happened.
