LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Friday’s Argentina vs. Paraguay 2012 futbol game (en vivo 7:10 PM EST) could be Paraguay’s last attempt to get back into these World Cup qualifiers. Prior to Argentina vs. Paraguay’s kickoff, the situation for Paraguay remains slim. The country is currently ranked next to last in the division. A loss by Paraguay, as a result, could be the end of its WC hopes.
Argentina vs. Paraguay 2012 will feature a third ranked team, Argentina, battling against an eighth ranked team, Paraguay, this Friday. Paraguay, however, is in a far worse situation than it seems. The country has only had one win, one draw, and three losses. Paraguay, moreover, is currently five points out from a guaranteed slot.
Argentina, however, is hoping to improve its ranking in the CONMEBOL Friday. But one player who won’t be taking to the field for Argentina Friday is Fabricio Coloccini. In a news statement, Argentina FA website said the star is too injured to paly. “Fabricio Coloccini has a hamstring injury in the femoral biceps of his right leg. He will travel with the squad to continue treatment with the team doctor.”
Lionel Messi in turn is seeking another win. “I do not know if this is my best year with the national team,” Messi told foreign news this week. “We have won a few games in a row and it is a while since we managed that. I played well at the Copa América, then there were some ups and downs, now I am enjoying how it is going.” For live updates of Friday’s match, click HERE.
