Farias slams 'provocative' Paraguay

Venezuela coach Cesar Farias has hit out at Paraguay after the two sides were embroiled in a mass brawl after their Copa America semi-final penalty shoot-out, which Paraguay won.

• Paraguay beat Venezuela on penalties

Paraguay set up a final showdown with Uruguay on Sunday after an uninspiring goalless draw with Venezuela was decided by spot-kicks, with Gerardo Martino's men triumphing 5-3.

But the success was marred by ugly scenes when a melee between players and officials of both teams broke out.

Police and security staff took several minutes to bring calm to a situation which is likely to come under investigation from tournament organisers.

Farias said: "We didn't go out to provoke an incident. However, some of the players and officials from Paraguay came to the game ready to provoke us.

"And to see that kind of behaviour is frustrating. They were making fun of us. We will not accept any more to be disrespected the way we were yesterday."
