Copa America : Paraguay 3-3 Venezuela

Venezuela scored two goals in the final moments of this match to rescue a vital point in a 3-3 draw with Paraguay - a result which will see both nations progress to the Copa America quarter-finals.

Salomon Rondon had given surprise pool leaders Venezuela a fifth-minute lead but Paraguay looked to be cruising into the last eight when goals from Antolin Alcaraz, Lucas Barrios and Cristian Riveros put them 3-1 up.

Venezuela never gave up, though, despite knowing their quarter-final place was already assured. Substitute Miku reduced the deficit in the 89th minute and then Grenddy Perozo headed home a stoppage-time equaliser.
