Teams from either continent collide as Paraguay face off against Qatar in Copa America 2019 in Brazil on Sunday.
Paraguay were once a juggernaut in the South American football, but have since fallen down the ranks. They clearly lack a star who can actually be a torchbearer for the younger guys, and it is hard to see them in this mess. They can still do well in this tournament, but the chances are highly unlikely. All they need is some much-needed experience and stability.
Meanwhile, Qatar are the Asian Cup champions from earlier this year, and will be hosting the next FIFA World Cup as well. The side is preparing itself perfectly, and a tournament such as this is the ideal litmus test for them. They will be looking to their best here and make sure that the team at least makes the knock out phase.
