SoccerPunter tip Total Goals Over 2.25 for Venezuela match

Posted on by SoccerPunter

Venezuela completed a weekend of Copa America shocks by reaching the semi-finals for their first time in their history with a gutsy 2-1 win over fancied Chile on Sunday.

Oswaldo Vizcarrondo gave Venezuela a 34th-minute lead only for Humberto Suazo to level midway through the second half. That gave the Chileans fresh energy and they had the Venezuelans on the rack for the best part of the next quarter-hour.

But just as extra-time seemed to be on the way once again Gabriel Cichero struck from close range to spark scenes of joy among the travelling Venezuelan fans and leave the Chileans, four-times finalists, stunned.

The giant-killers will now go up against a Paraguay side which sent holders Brazil packing after a penalty shootout success at La Plata outside Buenos Aires.

But the baseball-loving Venezuelans will have to make do without Tomas Rincon, red-carded in injury-time for some shirt pulling.

Chile also finished a man short after having Gary Medel sent off eight minutes from the end.

The shockwaves reached as far as Cuba, where joyous Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, preparing for chemotherapy on the Communist island, sent out his customary congratulatory tweet.

“Glory to the brave people! Let’s pay supreme tribute to our boys from the Glorious Vinotinto (the team nickname),” Chavez tweeted.

“Viva Venezuela! Oh what a goal. Bravo Venezuela,” tweeted an exuberant Chavez at half-time after Vizcarrondo’s opener, indicating his belief that former Cuban leader and long-time friend Fidel Castro had “brought the Vinotinto luck.”

Coach Cesar Farias was also delighted – though in typically more restrained fashion.

“The happiness we feel gives us the desire to keep on in the same vein,” said Farias.

But he added that winning the semi would be a tall order.

“Paraguay are a strong team and they will start favourites, insisted Farias.

Goalkeeper Renny Vega told Fox Sports that “we are getting stronger all the time. I just hope we can get to the final now.”
