Paraguay humble Turkey to top Group A

Turkey's player Abdussamed Karnucu duels for the ball against Paraguay's Alexis Duarte during the FIFA U-17 World Cup match in Navi Mumbai

Mali booked their spot in the knockout stages with a dominant 3-1 win over New Zealand in a Group B match of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup here on Thursday.

Giovanni Bogado, Fernando Cardozo, Antonio Gaeleano scored for the victor. They had beaten Mali (3-2) and New Zealand (4-2).

With this win Mali finish in second in their pool with six points from three matches while Paraguay topped Group B with an all win record beating Turkey 3-1 in the other match at Mumbai.

It hadn't begun well for the side, though, as it squandered a penalty kick in the second minute, the culprit being its hero in the last match - Anibal Vega.

Bouyed by the reprieve, Turkey settled down after the initial hesitancy. Kerem Kesgin scored the only goal for Turkey.

They soon doubled their lead within two minutes as Fernando Cardozo clipped in a pass from Blas Armoa.

However, good teams have a number of options to open up the opposition.

Turkey were never in control of the game right from the kickoff as the Latin American side kept on pressing in front of the goal.

He came up with some good saves but was unable to deny Mali in the 18th minute though, a ball being laid off into the path of Salam Jiddou for him to score one of the goals of the tournament so far by rifling a strike into the top corner from well outside the box. Blas Armoa collected a diagonal played from the centre of the park and raced in from the left to set-up Cardozo, who pulled off a delectable back heel past the custodian. But that made little difference as Turkey's goalkeeper Ozer was foxed appropriately - including a curling free-kick for the first goal - for a comprehensive victory. Striker Fernando Romero was brought in for Vega in the second half, but their attacks continued to flow.
