Paraguay U17s: Squad to participate in Copa Mexico de Naciones

The Albirrojita will participate in the 3rd Copa Mexico de Naciones from the 2nd of August which will act as a serious test before the 2015 Sudamericano to be held in Paraguay. The U17s find themselves in a tough group alongside neighbours Argentina, the USA and China.

The opening game is on 2nd August at 10:00 am local time (11:00 am Paraguay time) versus  Argentina followed by China the next day at 12:00 noon local time before finishing on Monday 4th August with the match against the USA at 10:00 am.

Last year Paraguay reached the semi-finals and finished 4th after a penalty defeat to the USA, they’ll hope to go one better this time.
