PEEP! PEEP! PEEP!

The Romanian referee blows the whistle to bring this game to an end. A comfortable 5-0 win for the US. 

They will play England or Japan.
...
90+1' -  The US are firmly in control and they are just counting down the seconds here.
...
Two minutes added on after the end of 90 minutes.
...
88' - Booth, Sargent and Carleton combine well to get out of a tight situation and now the US again roll the ball around. They really have no real intentions of looking for their sixth.
...
87' - The game has gone down to a walking pace. Ball into the US box but Durkin there to head it away.
...
85' - A bad tackle on Sargent who goes down in a heap but thanfully for the US - nothing really serious.
...
84' - Armoa again on the run down the left. 

But his ball into the middle is too close to Garces.
...
83' - Inches wide!

The best attempt on goal from Paraguay. Goslin was dispossessed and the Latin Americans went forward with Alexis Duarte.

He finds Armoa on the left. He cuts back and hits. Takes a deflection off Watts and out for a corner but that was inches wide of the far post.
...
83' - USA comfortable in possession and milking the clock at the moment.
...
82' - Booth with a great run as he pushes that behind Marcelo Rolón Bell and runs on to it. But no one in the box and thus he has come back.
...
81' - A ball in from the right from Paraguay but Garces deals with under pressure.
...
79' - First appearance for Taylor Booth in the World Cup as Akinola comes on.
...
78' - Akinola went down with cramps during that build up to the goal and now is being stretchered off.
...
77' - HAT-TRICK. TIMOTHY WEAH!

Akinola with a great run down the right. He was tackled but the ball fell to Carleton. He knew Weah was behind him and played him in. Weah with another thumping finish and this as good as it gets.


...
75' - 4-0. GAME OVER!

Sargent makes up for his mishap a couple of minutes earlier. Great work in the middle by Carleton as he gets past his man and then plays in Sargent.

He looked a bit uncomfortable for a moment but then smashes it off the underside of the bar and into the net.
...
74' - Paraguay with another effort. Baez this time with a quick swivel to make space. 

But his shot is wide again.
...
73' - Sargent with a great run. Goes through everyone and looks up to find Weah besides him. 

He tries to find his teammate after going beyond the defence. But that was neither a shot nor a cross and a chance goes begging.
...
69' - The Americans on the counter. Finds Akinola with a great run down the right. He, however, pulls that wide of the mark.
...
68' - Good turn and find by Baez. Rodriguez with a good first touch and hit. But again, as has been the case all night - wide over the goal.
...
67' - The US are still on their toes as the tempo of the game seems to have dropped.
...
65' - Sargent with a rash tackle and now with an unnecessary yellow card.
...
63' - CARLETON! 3-0!

Weah with a great clipped ball to Akinola. But his first touch is not great. Comes to Sargent and he gets Watts. He plays it to Akinola who repays the favour to Watts to coasts past Rolon. 

He plays into Sargent who turns and fins Carleton waiting at the edge of the box. His shot is a first time one and right into the bottom corner.
...
61' - USA could have sprung a break but Carleton slips at the important moment.

Paraguay come forward. Romero and Armoa combine but the US defence is there to deflect it away for a throw.
...
60' - Carleton with the free kick. 

Into the thick of things but the keeper gets to that and punches it clear.
...
59' - Gloster caught on the left by Duarte and another freekick to the US in an advanced area.
...
58' - Akinola down the right and gets a ball in but the keeper this time comes out and collects.
...
57' - Gloster overran it and Paraguay look to hit down the left. But Watts with a really good challenge to snuff that attack out.
...
56' - Armoa's first intervention in the game is to give away a free kick on Carleton.
...
55' - Cardozo off as Armoa comes on for Paraguay.
...
That is a hammer blow to Paraguay's hopes.
...
53' - WEAAAAAAAAH!

What a goal! Arguably the best I have seen in the World Cup. 

Vassiliev fed Weah on the left. He cuts inside and lets one fly from outside the box. Into the top far corner. No chance for the keeper.
...
52' - Rodriguez again fluffs his line. 

Duarte on to Rolon and he found Rodriguez on the right. Cuts back and shoots but that is not going to trouble the keeper.
...
50' - Another chance goes begging.

Great hold up play by Sargent. Into Akinola who gets in Carleton who whips in a first-time ball. Finds Weah at the far post and he instead of trying to hit it on the volley looks to head it. 

On target but no real power behind it. Easy for the keeper.
...
48' - Baez again looks for a long ball in to Romero but that is intercepted.
...
47' - Romero gets in and they look to turn his defender. Durkin, though, sticks tight and gets a firm tackle in.
...
47' - Great ball to Cardozo. He looks to find his teammate on the right but USA get it clear.
...
46' - USA with a change as Gloster comes on for Dest.
...
The players are back we are underway.
...
That's the last big action of the first half. The United States head into the half with a one-goal lead and based on the balance of play, it is a deserved one.
...
45+3' - OFF THE LINE!

USA with a thrown from the left. Sargent took a deep position and puts the ball across goal and over the keeper. Akinola on the far post and he somehow decides to chest it in instead of heading it in. 

Soft attempt and Rolon is there to hook it clear.
