share on:

Colombia have sealed a spot in the next stage of the Copa America Centenario, following a 2-1 win over Paraguay, with Bacca and Rodriguez on the score sheet.

The Real Madrid attacker shook off a shoulder injury, as he scored his second goal of the tournament in as many matches, after Bacca scored the opener against 10-man Paraguay.

Paraguay came out firing on all cylinders in the second half, with substitute Ayala pulling a goal back, but a second yellow card for Romero, dented their chances of finding the equaliser.

The Lanus midfielder received two yellow cards in as many minutes, with Colombia holding out for victory.

The win means Colombia advances to the last eight of the centenary tournament, while Paraguay must beat the United States in its final Group A fixture to go through to the quarterfinals.
