Paraguay fell behind with an early penalty but fought back against 10 players in the second half to beat Bolivia 3-1 in their opening Copa America soccer match on Monday.

Bolivia took the lead in the 10th minute from the penalty spot, but the match was turned upside down before the break when 19-year-old Bolivia’s Jaume Cuellar was sent off for a second yellow card.

Paraguay equalized with a shot from outside the penalty area by Kaku in the 62nd minute, then Angel Romero put it in front three minutes later from close range after goalkeeper Robin Cordano saved a header that was on its way to the goal.

Romero made it 3-1 10 minutes from time after a quick counter-attack.

With this result, Paraguay tops Group A, ahead of Argentina and Chile, after they drew 1-1 earlier on Monday
