World Cup 2010 - Santa Cruz and Paraguay move on

Subject to plenty of speculation regarding his future at City, Roque Santa Cruz played a second successive ninety minutes as Paraguay took a point from their goalless draw against New Zealand to finish atop Group H.

The highlights I caught didn't suggest the game would go down in the annals of all-time World Cup encounters but it did see Paraguay ensure a first place finish, and they will move on to the knock-out stages with some confidence.

Paraguay will next face Japan in Pretoria next Tuesday afternoon.
