Match Commentary

91' FULL-TIME: A terrific performance from T&T, despite the scoreline; they out-played Paraguay for most of the game, and exit the tournament rightly proud of what they have achieved.
89' PARAGUAY SUB: Da Silva comes on to replace Caniza.
88' Sweden have equalised in Cologne.
87' Poor old T&T; they have played wonderfully well tonight and given it their all, but are going to be on the end of a defeat.
86' LOVELY GOAL! Cuevas plays a delightful one-two with Santa Cruz on the edge of the area before slotting a shot past an exposed Jack.
85' Paraguay will be desperate to take the heat out of the game in the final five minutes; they have been bombarded since the break.
84' TERRIFIC! Birchall tracks back and puts in another good challenge as Cuevas tries to get down the Paraguay left.
83' Good news for T&T from Cologne; England have re-taken the lead. If T&T can score three in the last seven minutes, they're through...
82' It has been a wonderful second half by T&T; they have thrown all they have at Paraguay, and never let their heads drop.
81' MORE PRESSURE! Low crosses fly across the penalty area, but T&T just can't get a boot on the end to turn them home.
80' LOVELY FEET! Latapy shows great skill on the edge of the area to earn a yard of space, but the veteran than hits his shot straight at Bobadilla.
79' PARAGUAY SUB: Caceres is replaced by Manzur; the substitute has the nicknamed 'Robocop', apparently.
78' OOOH! Latapy blasts a first-time shot a couple of yards over the crossbar after Jones had found him with a wonderful header.
77' Edwards makes a superb challenge just outside his penalty area; he has been immense down the right for T&T.
76' TACKLE! Caceres makes a wonderful tackle on the edge of his own penalty area to halt Latapy's run through the middle.
75' Wise does wonderfully to beat two men with a forceful run down the left, but his cross lacks composure and is over-hit.
74' T&T are strill driving forward in numbers, but they just can't create the clean-cut chances they need. I think they deserve to score; they have been excellent tonight.
73' YORKE! Latapy tees up Yorke on the edge of the area, but the veteran's drive flies the wrong side of the post.
72' GOOD EFFORT! Birchall takes a half-clearance on his chest before firing in a right-foot shot, but he strikes it over the bar. He looks very disappointed with himself.
71' Birchall is still giving it his all in the midfield for T&T; he has had a really good game this evening.
70' OVER! Cuevas beats his marker on the edge of the penalty area, but his right-foot shot is sliced high over the crossbar.
69' Yorke's free-kick is well defended inside the Paraguay penalty area.
68' Latapy received an enormous cheer when he came on to the field for a sentimental final appearance for his country.
67' T&T SUB: Latapy comes on to replace Whitley; the 37-year-old veteran comes on for the final twenty minutes or so.
66' PARAGUAY SUB: Cuevas comes on to replace Valdez.
66' T&T enjoy an excellent spell of possession and pressure as they load crosses in to the Paraguay penalty area.
65' TOO HIGH! Wise beats his man and gets to the by-line before sending over a good cross, but it is just a foot too high for the unmarked Yorke to be able to do something with it.
64' Jack has been forced in to seven saves so far this evening, and he has looked solid on all of them.
63' SAVE! Barreto crashes in another shot on goal after Santa Cruz had held up the ball for him, but again Jack is equal to the shot.
62' GOOD CROSS! Edwards powers down the right wing and sends over a teasing cross to the back post, but Bobadilla manages to paw it clear.
61' T&T have now gone four hours in this World Cup without scoring a goal; they need at least one more in the final half-an-hour to keep their dream alive.
60' OFF-SIDE! Stern John is caught off-side inside the penalty area; replays show he had just strayed in front of the last defender.
59' Paraguay produce a flowing move from right to left, but Edwards does really well to get back and snuff out the danger just outside his penalty area.
58' Dos Santos wins a corner off Sancho; Paredes gets round the back and loses his marker, but can't keep his header down.
57' A rareity in international football - a foul throw, from Whitley.
56' EASY SAVE! Paredes slams in a low shot from distance, but Jack gets down low to save.
56' Yorke is getting forward a lot more than he did in the first half, when he basically just sat in front of his back four.
55' Dos Santos is booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle had gone; that was a little picky from the referee.
54' A lot of the neutrals in the crowd would love to see T&T get an equaliser to really set up an interesting half-hour; can the Soca Warriors manage it?
53' Paraguay seem to have soaked up that spell of pressure from T&T; they have managed to slow the pace down again.
52' Trinidad and Tobago are having a real go at the start of this second half; it is good to see they are keeping their spirits up.
51' GOOD DEFENDING! Edwards' cross in to the penalty area is well cleared by Gamarra.
50' Bad news from Cologne for T&T; Sweden have equalised...
49' Whitley is shown the yellow card for a studs-up challenge on the half-way line.
48' GREAT ATTACK! T&T launch a swift counter through Kenwyne Jones; he feeds Edwards in the penalty area, but his low cross is a yard in front of John at the back post.
48' Sancho is penalised for holding off Valdez, 40 yards out. Free-kick to Paraguay.
47' T&T have to win if they are to progress; it should be a barn-storming second half.
46' Paraguay kick off the second half.
46' HALF-TIME: T&T have played well and are unlucky to be down. England are doing their job in Cologne, but it needs a massive second half from T&T to turn around this scoreline and give themselves a chance of meeting Germany in the second round.
45' FLYING SAVE! Valdez powers a header in on goal after being picked out by a good cross, but Jack makes a great, full-stretch save.
44' As a South American nation, Paraguay will be masters at taking the pace out of the game and keeping possession as the game wears on.
43' Birchall and Yorke have been excellent in midfield for T&T; they have snapped around the heels of the Paraguayans and quickly launched counter-attacks of their own.
42' JUST WIDE! Santa Cruz breaks down the left, showing good pace and power as he drifted past his marker, but his cross-shot bobbles wide of the far post.
41' T&T have a mountain to climb in the second half, but I'm sure they'll give it all they have got.
40' T&T SUB: Glen is replaced by Wise; the substitute is a pacey, tricky left-winger; Glen receives a warm round of applause as he is stretchered from the field.
39' Glen is writhing around in agony as he is strapped on to the stretcher; replays show he turned his ankle quite badly.
38' Glen looks hurt after a sliding challenge by Gamarra; he seemed to fall badly on his left leg. He might even have broken his ankle, there. Poor lad.
37' NICE MOVE, POOR FINISH! Birchill slices a shot from distance wide of the post after a nice passing break from T&T.
36' GOAL! NO! LATE OFF-SIDE FLAG! Caniza fires a low shot under the body of Jack after sprinting on to a chest-down by Dos Santos; the Paraguayans celebrate, but are stopped by a flag.
36' GOOD SAVE! Valdez is put through as he loses his marker, but Jack is quick off his line to smother.
35' Kelvin Jack has looked strong in the T&T goal; he has commanded his defence well.
34' The substitute Jones has gone up to play alongside Stern John; he is a strong, tall striker, and will certainly be a threat in the air.
33' It would be easy for T&T to let their heads drop, but an equaliser would really give them confidence to push on in the second half.
32' News from Cologne will boost T&T - England have taken the lead...
31' T&T SUB: Avery John is replaced by Jones; it is a bold, attacking change, who brings off his left back for another striker.
30' Yorke is brought down by Paredes, who is booked for the challenge. Free-kick to T&T, around 35 yards out. Yorke gets to his feet and places the ball...
29' John is caught off-side as he tried to get on the end of a superb ball over the top of the defence by Yorke.
28' It's going to be tough for T&T now; they need to win this match to have any chance of going through, but they are going to leave themselves open at the back as they chase the game.
27' Paraguay have come back strongly after a good spell from T&T; they look very threatening when they do get the chance to go forward.
26' Disappointing moment for Sancho as he heads past his own goalkeeper to send Paraguay in front.
25' GOAL! The free-kick is whipped in to the crowded penalty area; the ball is flicked on first by Dos Santos before deflecting off Sancho and in to the far corner.
24' Acuna curls a free-kick in to the middle...
23' Valdez heads Paredes' cross wide from around the penalty spot; he should really have tested Jack from there.
22' GOOD EFFORT! Jack comes out of his penalty area to try and clear a long ball; he controls it on his chest, but Valdez nips in and attempts an acrobatic over-head kick from 25 yards, although he doesn't get a clean contact.
21' Paraguay have picked up a few knocks in these early minutes; this time Barreto takes a blow to the face.
20' Edwards goes on a thrusting run down the right as T&T break from inside their own half. Good play from the Luton Town player.
19' T&T are playing for a match against Germany in the second round; they know there is a lot riding on this match.
18' Paraguay have been pinned back in their own half in the first twenty minutes; their attacks have been infrequent.
17' ...Yorke dips the free-kick in towards the back post, but Bobadilla charges out and powers the ball out for a throw with a commanding punch.
16' Another free-kick to T&T as Acuna climbs on Whitley. Yorke has another opportunity to send a dangerous ball in to the penalty area...
15' Valdez is helped from the field after he received a knock on his foot during a challenge with Yorke.
14' Edwards' cross is cleared by Acuna; the Paraguayans are under a little pressure.
13' T&T will be pleased with the start they've made; they look determined and committed in midfield, and they are winning a lot of ball in good positions.
12' ...CLOSE! Yorke's free-kick again causes problems, Nunez is forced to head out for a corner.
12' Caniza goes in strongly from behind on Theobold; T&T free-kick, 35 yards out. Again, Yorke stands over the set-piece, directing operations...
11' The Soca Warriors appear to have more fans inside the stadium than their South American counterparts; there are a lot of flags and banners in their support.
10' Paraguay look to be showing a little more ambition than they did in the first two matches; they are getting men quickly up to support Santa Cruz.
9' CLOSE! Santa Cruz flashes a header a yard or so over the crossbar from a vicious corner sent in from the right.
9' Nice play by Dos Santos as he cuts in from the right flank to start a Paraguay counter-attack.
8' T&T will be keeping an eye on the score from the England v Sweden game; if England are leading, it will surely spur on the Soca Warriors.
7' OOH! Whitley gets on the end of a half-cleared free-kick; he fires a wonderful first-time shot from the edge of the area, but his effort whistles over the crossbar.
6' It has been a really bright start here; both sides want to finish the tournament on a positive note, which is great to see.
5' ...SAVE! Yorke curls the free-kick in to the middle; it is met by Glenn, who's header is well saved by Bobodilla.
5' T&T win their first free-kick when Glenn is brought down. Yorke stands over the set-piece...
4' another Paraguay corner is sent in to the crowded T&T penalty area, but Paredes heads well wide.
4' There is a wonderful atmosphere inside the Fritz-Walter Stadion this evening; both sets of fans want to go out with a bang.
3' SAVE! Jack makes a great save as he tips a dangerous, in-swinging free-kick around the post for a Paraguay corner.
2' Trinidad can still qualify for the second round, if they win here and Sweden are beaten by England. It will then go down to goal difference.
1' HERE WE GO! Trinidad kick off the action on a warm, dry evening in Kaiserslauten.
