FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019: Paraguay roll past Solomon Islands

Matias Segovia and Wilder Viera (L) of Paraguay U-17 celebrate a scored goal

Paraguay opened the scoring in just the third minute against Solomon Islands on Thursday and carried their momentum through the rest of the match, prevailing 7-0 in the biggest win to date at the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2019 La Albirroja were unselfish offensively to the tune of six different goal scorers: Junior Noguera, Matias Segovia, Diego Torres, Fernando Presentado, Fabio Barrios and Diego Duarte all tallied, with Torres nabbing a brace.

This performance from Paraguay made Monday's physical, goalless affair against Concacaf champions Mexico feel miles away. Noguera's early chip over Solomon Islands goalkeeper Davidson Malam set the tone, and La Albirroja wore out their competition with five goals in the final 25 minutes of the game. Now boasting four points from two matches and a formidable goal differential, Paraguay have bolstered their knockout phase prospects.

The Oceania side never lacked for effort or bravery, but came up against a proven defence and attackers eager to open Paraguay's account at Brazil 2019. Malam faced an insurmountable 28 shots, 13 of which hit the target. He twice used his feet to make impressive stops in one-on-one situations, once in each half. Solomon Islands remain in search of their first goal at a U-17 world finals
