US books Place in Quar­ter­fi­nals

The Kurdish Globe - - SPORTS -

The U.S. na­tional team booked its place in the Copa Amer­ica quar­ter­fi­nals with a gutsy and well-earned vic­tory against a re­lent­less Paraguay side. The South Amer­i­cans, with their lightning fast coun­ter­at­tack, looked like a team that could score mul­ti­ple goals in quick suc­ces­sion, if only they could find that first goal to chip at the U.S. de­fen­sive wall. That goal never came though, as the U.S. played the kind of gutsy and in­spired match that re­sulted in a 1-0 vic­tory and felt so much sweeter than its 4-0 win against Costa Rica.
