Paraguay provided the first upset at the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Bahamas 2017 after a well-deserved 5-3 victory over holders Portugal in their second Group C match.
The first two periods were evenly contested, as Jordan twice cancelled out goals from Paraguay’s Jesus Rolon and Pedro Moran.
In the third period, Paraguay secured a famous win with three fine goals from Moran, Juan Lopez, and Carlos Carballo.
Alan’s late reply for Portugal was not enough to turn things around, as the South Americans earned all three points.
