Vladimir Weiss's Slovakians will look to recover from that setback in their high-stakes meeting with a Paraguay side known for their solid defense and counter-attacking credentials. Slovakia conceded a late goal against New Zealand and was forced to settle for a 1-1 draw in its opening match, while Paraguay drew defending champion Italy 1-1. Slovakia after a set-back against the All Whites would be hoping to win and book their place for second round.
Meanwhile Slovakia goalkeeper Jan Mucha is pumped up going into the match and he believes he will be kept busy by Paraguay attack.
On the other side Paraguay coach Gerardo Martino is happy with his Latin American side and had all praises for the players.
They would definately want to win against against Slovakia and give themselfs a good chance to qualify for the second round. Roque Santa Cruz who did not start during their match against Italy is said to be ready for selection.
Players to watch out for:
Paraguay: Roque Santa Cruz, Cristian Riveros, Lucas Barrios
Slovakia: Robert Vittek, Marek Hamsik
