Copa: Tragedy For Paraguay Hero

Joy turned to tragedy for Paraguay hero Derlis Gonzalez as he learned that his uncle died while celebrating his winning Copa America penalty.

The 21-year-old levelled the quarterfinal against Brazil from the penalty spot and then scored the decisive penalty in the shootout to seal his country’s place in the last four.

However, the FC Basel forward then learnt after the game that his uncle had died of a heart attack celebrating the victory.
