Olympic players included in Paraguay squad for qualifier
ASUNCION, Aug 26 (Reuters) -
Ten members of Paraguay's Olympic squad, which will play Argentina for the gold medal on Saturday, have been called up for next month's World Cup qualifier against Venezuela.
Goalkeeper Diego Barreto, defenders Emilio Martinez and Julio Manzur, midfielders Edgar Barreto and Aureliano Torres and striker Fredy Bareiro were among the players included in the 24-man squad for the game in Asuncion on September 5.
Also included are regulars Roque Santa Cruz of Bayern Munich and Reggina's Carlos Paredes.
Paraguay, who qualified for the Olympic tournament at Brazil's expense, have beaten Italy and Iraq on the way to the final.
"Venezuela like to play on the attack, even away from home, so we have to take care at the back," coach Anibal Ruiz told reporters.
Paraguay are attempting to qualify for their third successive World Cup and are fourth in the South American group with 11 points from seven games. Venezuela are in sixth place a point behind.
The top four teams qualify directly for the 2006 finals in Germany while the fifth plays off against the Oceania region winners -- either Australia or the Solomon Islands.
