After their 3-1victory over Turkey in the last Group B match of the Group Stage, Pedro Alvarez followed the traditional celebration routine.

Earlier, they had defeated Mali, one of the title contenders, 3-2, and New Zealand 4-2, at the D Y Patil stadium.

With six points, Mali occupy second place in their group, behind Paraguay at nine points.

A classy quick-fire double from Giovanni Bogado and Fernando Cardozo at the end of the first half left Turkey with it all to do after the break, and their task became near-impossible after Antonio Galeano added a third just after the hour mark.

Paraguay took the lead after missing a penalty.

But Paraguay captain Alexis Duarte endured the worst nightmare of his fledgeling career when the defender conceded two own goals in the 20th and 34th minutes.

It started off in rather less celebratory fashion for the Los Guaranies, who saw Anibal Vega's penalty saved in just the second minute by Berke Ozer.

Bouyed by the reprieve, Turkey settled down after the initial hesitancy. For Turkey, Kerem Kergin's injury-time screamer came too late. Left winger Traore was a constant threat for the New Zealand defence throughout the match with his speed, ball control and deft footwork.

However, good teams have a number of options to open up the opposition. But Paraguay played a waiting game and was rewarded in the 41st and 43rd minutes. A free-kick. taken from a few meters away from the box, curled enough to keep away from diving Turkey goalkeeper. Having sensed that he had over-run the ball, Cardozo managed enough back-heel touch to guide the ball into the right bottom corner. They could have made it 3-0 in the 65 minute had Cheick Oumar Doucoure's shot not rebounded off the woodwork.
