Paraguay will have to rebuild their team if they want to qualify for the next World Cup after their Copa America exit.
Indeed, Paraguay has been eliminated from the Copa America Centenario following the defeat against the United States. For many pundits, this has been a big disappointment for a team that has reached the semifinals in the last two tournaments.
Paraguay has not managed to win a single match at the Copa America and scored only one goal. They managed only to draw with Costa Rica and were beaten by Colombia. They needed a win against the United States in order to progress to the next round, but they unfortunately lost the game.
Paraguay’s next games will be against the likes of Chile and Uruguay for the World Cup qualifiers, and they will have to improve a lot if they want to have a chance of making it to the World Cup. They are currently seventh in the table and with only the top four teams making it to the finals, Paraguay will have to make changes to their team if they want to have a hope of qualifying.
In a statement released by the football association of Paraguay, it has been revealed that coach Ramon Diaz has resigned from his post following the elimination. The team will have some major rebuilding to do if they want to have a chance to make it to the next World Cup.
At the moment, they seem to be a team that lacks cohesion and organization. We will have to wait for the end of the Copa America to find out which coach will replace Diaz. Paraguay possesses a lot of quality players, but they will need the right coach to help them organize the team.
