Here’s what you need to know: Slovakia got their first shot on goal in the 92nd minute. That sums up the viewing experience.

But Paraguay, you might be saying, got 2 goals! And they did. And on those plays, they looked great – Vera with a clinical finish in the first half, Riveros with an explosive one in the second. The first came off a throw-in, the second off a free-kick. But the rest of the game was spent in neutral, mostly because Slovakia didn’t seem to care at all. Paraguay had no reason to expend a bunch of energy with the lead and an opponent only marginally more threatening than 11 caskets.
