Facts :
The team known as the "Guaraníes" was present at the first FIFA World Cup finals at Uruguay '30. One victory and one defeat was not enough to qualify for the semi-finals. In 1950 and 1958, Paraguay failed to progress from the qualifying group. They would have to wait until 1986 to return to football's biggest stage. In Mexico, Paraguay reached the second round for the first time. However, their luck ran out in a 3-0 defeat to England, with coach Caetano Re forced to watch the match from the stands.
In 1998, a Paraguay team featuring goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert sent shockwaves through the tournament. Their unbeaten run was eventually ended by a golden goal in the second round defeat to eventual FIFA World Cup winners France. The second round was again the end of Paraguay's campaign again in 2002.
