Paraguay beat Brazil on penalties

Paraguay will celebrate, while Brazil will again be left to ask questions about what has happened to its national team.

The fact Neymar was missing didn't help the Selecao but they lacked the kind of quality and style they have been associated with in the past.

For the time being, it's time to go but you can follow more live football action by

Right, so the Ciopa America semi-final line-up is:

Derlis Gonzalez will get plenty of the headlines for his part in Paraguay's success and deservedly so.

He kept his cool to slot in the penalty which brought his side deservedly level before scoring the decisive spot-kick in the shoot-out to secure his side's progress.

Paraguay beat Brazil on penalties

Brazil cannot have much cause for complaint after losing on penalties. Robinho had given them the early lead but rather than going and trying to build on that lead they sat back too much.

Paraguay were allowed to put pressure on the Selecao and it eventually paid off with Derlis Gonzalez getting the equaliser.

Brazil struggled in the final third for most of the night and paid the price.

Paraguay's players are celebrating as it's agony again for Brazil. La Albirroja beat the Selecao on penalties four years ago and have repeated the trick.

They will now face Argentina in the semi-finals.

SCORES!

Brazil 3-4 Paraguay - Derlis Gonzalez

A spot-kick with power and placement sends Paraguay through.

Low and hard as he sends the keeper the wrong way.

OVER!

Another one which goes well over.

A bad, bad miss as it goes over the crossbar.

High into the top corner. No chance for keeper Jefferson.

Coolly sidefooted to the keeper's left.

SCORES!

Brazil 1-2 Paraguay - Victor Caceres

Powered down the centre of the goal.

WIDE!

After an extravagant run-up, he drags his low shot wide of the post.

SCORES!

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay - Osvaldo Martinez

He again goes for power and Jefferson had no chance.

SCORES!

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay - Fernandinho

He goes for power over placement and Paraguay keeper Justo Villar gets a touch but can't keep it out.

PENALTY SHOOT-OUT

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Just to remind you, the winners will face Argentina, who themselves won a penalty shoot-out against Colombia last night with Carlos Tevez getting the winner.

PENALTY SHOOT-OUT

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

These two teams were involved in a penalty shoot-out four years ago at the same stage of the Copa America and Paraguay won 2-0. Brazil failed to score any of their spot-kicks.

Can Brazil avenge that loss or will Paraguay again prevail? Let's see...

FULL-TIME

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

A penalty shoot-out it is.

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Paraguay have a free-kick from their right flank but nothing comes of it as Brazil clear and the referee gives a free-kick for a foul by Roque Santa Cruz.

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

There will be three added minutes.

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Everton Ribeiro comes on for Robinho, who gave Brazil the lead earlier on.

For a true Brazilian 'o' you have to look at Edmundo. Outrageously gifted, outrageously unbalanced. Still remember his goal against Man Utd in the world club cup...magical! Matt, Edinburgh

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Just going back to Liverpool's new signing Roberto Firmino. The Brazil playmaker was substituted just before Paraguay's equaliser after a rather anonymous game. In his defence, he was playing in a more advanced striker role.

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Philippe Coutinho tries to curl a shot in from the right and Paraguay keeper Justo Villar nervously blocks the ball away before a Dani Alves free-kick goes wide of his goal.

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Brazil's Jefferson is by far the busier of the two keepers. He fends away a well-struck Derlis Gonzalez shot as Paraguay almost take advantage of a swift counter-attack.

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

S. Rahman: That's why Thiago Silva isn't world class. Seen him do that loads of times

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Paraguay midfielder Eduardo Aranda comes off and is replaced by Osvaldo Martinez.

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Paraguay look like the most likely winners at the moment as Brazil's threat has been minimal since their goal. If it does stay like this then the match will go straight to penalties with no extra-time.

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay

Paraguay boss Ramon Diaz brings on Raul Bobadilla for Nelson Valdez.

GOAL

Brazil 1-1 Paraguay - Derlis Gonzalez (Pen)

Brazil keeper Jefferson dives the right way but the penalty from Derlis Gonzalez is too precise as it finds the bottom corner of the net.

PENALTY TO PARAGUAY

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

Thiago Silva has a moment of madness as the PSG defender handballs needlessly in the box! Spot-kick...

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

Roberto Firmino's game has come to an end as he is hauled off for Diego Tardelli.

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

BBC World Service's Richard Padula at the Estadio Municipal: "The air is thick with wood-smoke as the fans (mostly Chilean) begin to whistle the players. Arguably the dullest game of the tournament so far. They should put a re-run of Argentina v Colombia on the big screen."

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

Brazil try to catch Paraguay out on the counter-attack. Roberto Firmino leads the charge but he can't apply the finishing ball as a Paraguay defender cuts out his cross.

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

Another scare for Brazil. I've had my doubts about Brazil keeper Jefferson but he's just pulled off a quality save to maintain his side's lead.

Paraguay defender Paulo Da Silva meets a corner with a powerful header and Jefferson gets down low to palm the ball away.

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

That's it for Willian. The Brazil midfielder is replaced by Douglas Costa as Dunga makes the first substitution of the match.

Not for me...

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

BBC World Service's Richard Padula at the Estadio Municipal: "Slightly off-topic but here in Chile

Gonzalo Jara's wandering finger is still making headlines.

"A Chilean restaurant aptly called "The Hole" has created a dish to honour the player who took man-to-man market to the next level in the game against Uruguay.

"Called the "Great Super Jara", it contains: two different types of pork, fresh cheese, boiled egg, olives, and a 'finger' made from cow's tongue!

"Good value too. 9,900 pesos for a serving which feeds four people."

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

Paraguay are stepping up the urgency and intensity. Brazil keeper Jefferson has to keep out a surprise free-kick to his near post before he watches a Nelson Valdez header go just over.

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

Edgar Benitez has been Paraguay's main threat on the left flank and his pace causes right-back Dani Alves more problems, with the Brazil player fouling him and picking up a yellow in the process.

Brazil 1-0 Paraguay

Brazil midfielder Willian gets a shove in the back from Pablo Aguilar as he tries to shield the ball before it goes out of play. There's nothing doing for the Chelsea player as he appeals for a free-kick with the assistant referee giving Paraguay a throw-in.
