Vahid HALILHODZIC, Coach's Comment

The Paraguayan players are strong in one-on-one situations, and they are also capable of making smart decisions according to each game situations. The counter-attacks generated from their tenacious defense are a major threat. This match shall act as the final touch for the three and a half year buildup of the team. It will also give the team a last chance to condition themselves before the tournament.
