Former Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio has been named as the new Paraguay coach and has been charged with the task of qualifying them for the next Copa America and the World Cup. Juan Carlos Osorio who comes from Colombia was the coach of Mexico at the last World Cup in Russia.
Ever since reaching the quarter-final of the World Cup in 2010, Paraguay has failed to replicate the same form in the last two World Cups and will be hoping that Juan Carlos Osorio will inspire to success.
Paraguay looked to go beyond the disappointment of not reaching the World Cup 2018 by coming in with a strong performance against the United States in a friendly match. The Paraguayan team narrowly missed out on the World Cup spot after finishing just two points behind Peru, who reached the World Cup through a play-off with New Zealand.
A late goal conceded against Venezuela led to Paraguay finishing outside the play-off places. Memories of this horrendous defeat will be in the memory for Paraguay, who has interim manager Gustavo Morinigo in charge of the duties coming into the game.
Players of a Paraguayan club have accused their former president of sexual abuse, according to reports. At least two players have accused the former boss of a fourth division club Rubio Nu Club, Antonio Gonzalez of abusing them.
The allegations received traction following the release of an intimate photo of the former president and a player. There are reports that a prosecutor has taken up the case and is currently carrying out investigations. The prosecutor Teresa Martinez ordered officials to search the club premises and pornographic material was found. More Link
