Honda gunning for Paraguay

Japan's talismanic forward, Keisuke Honda, is confident he can continue his fine run of form against Paraguay in the teams' Round of 16 showdown in Tshwane/Pretoria on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old converted striker has already scored twice in Japan's groundbreaking run in South Africa, establishing himself as a pivotal figure as Takeshi Okada's side have reached the last 16 for the first time beyond home shores. With Japan now bidding to go one step further and reach the quarter-finals for the first time, the CSKA Moscow man sounded an optimistic note as he told "Paraguay are a strong team but I am confident I can score and my team can win the game to progress."

The story is too old to be commented.

I hope he does goo for his team, but i believe Paraguay might take the match away.
