National captain Rodolph Austin is certain his team can earn the three points it needs off Paraguay, when Jamaica meet the South Americans in their second Copa America football match at Calvo y BascuÒ·n Stadium this evening at 6 p.m. (4 p.m. Jamaica time).

"I believe in my team, and I know that we can get a result tomorrow; that's the aim," Austin told reporters yesterday.

"Definitely, we've got to get a result tomorrow," Austin commented on their ambitions to get out of the group. "It's a good opportunity for us to go out there and show what we can do.

"We've the quality; we created chances in the first game (against Uruguay), and I know we can create chances again and once we get those chances and put them away, I know we're solid," he stated.

Austin also said the Paraguayans will be a different proposition.

"Paraguay are different from Uruguay, so we expect a tougher game tomorrow. Paraguay like to counterattack, so we've to be prepared."
