SALTA - Venezuela stunned
Paraguay with two goals in the dying minutes to snatch a 3-3
draw at the Copa America on
Jose Rondon put Venezuela ahead after five minutes when he
surprised goalkeeper Justo Villar with a shot from outside the
box after a pass from the left by Tomas Rincon.
Paraguay hit back just past the half hour when a high ball
into the box came back off goalkeeper Renny Vega's post and was
played into the middle where the defence failed to clear and
centre back Antolin Alcaraz fired home.
Striker Lucas Barrios put the Paraguayans ahead in the 63rd
minute when Nelson Haedo Valdez's shot from the left was parried
by the diving Vega and the striker turned in the rebound.
Paraguay opened a two-goal lead four minutes from time when
midfielder Cristian Riveros sent a glancing header inside the
near post from a free-kick from the right.
Venezuela then staged a stunning comeback when striker
Nicolas Fedor pulled one back in the final minute and three
minutes into added-time Grenddy Perozo equalised with a diving
header at a corner.
