Victories remain elusive for Vinotinto. This Thursday the national team fell 2-1 to Paraguay at the close of the triple date of the South American qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Just six minutes after the opening whistle, Héctor David Martínez put the albirroja ahead with a powerful shot that surprised and left goalkeeper Wilker Fariñez lying down.
After 20 minutes Jefferson Savarino had to leave the game due to an adductor injury and was replaced by Eduard Bello.
Little by little, Vinotinto was adjusting and managed to keep the locals at bay. However, after the break Paraguay was more aggressive and managed to extend their lead.
Alejandro Romero Gamarra hung up 2-0 in the first minute of the second half.
Venezuela's only goal came after the impeccable collection of a corner kick.
Yeferson Soteldo put the ball into the area and Jhon Chancellor appeared to score with a header just when the 90 regulations were met.
Chancellor, who had already scored last June 3 in the 1-XNUMX defeat against Bolivia, stands as the team's top scorer.
With the victory this Thursday, Paraguay reached 11 points and remains in sixth place in the standings.
For its part, Vinotinto, who faced this triple date with Leo González as interim coach, failed to add in any of his presentations and remains last with only four units.
