Osorio named new Paraguay boss

Former Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio will lead Paraguay through their qualifying campaign for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™.

The Colombian, who took El Tri to the Round of 16 at Russia 2018, was named on Monday as La Albirroja’s new coach for the upcoming World Cup cycle and 2019 Copa America.

The 57-year-old Osorio has previously coached club sides in Colombia, Mexico, Brazil and USA.

Paraguay failed to qualify for the past two World Cups, having reached the quarter-finals at South Africa 2010.
