A blunder by Jamaica's goalkeeper Duwayne Kerr in the 35th minute handed Paraguay 1-0 lead at half-time in a Group B Copa America clash in Chile.

Jamaica started the game with a packed midfield and were always under pressure from Paraguay's attackers led by Roque Santa Cruz.

The goal came when Kerr advanced to intercept a long pass into the Jamaica area and headed the ball against Paraguay's Egbar Benitez. The ball rebounded off the Paraguay attacker and into the Jamaica net.
