With a win essential, Trinidad & Tobago start the second half brightly with Stern John getting among the defenders
Trinidad and Tobago's spirited World Cup campaign ended with defeat by Paraguay in Kaiserslautern.
The Caribbean side went behind in the 25th minute through a headed own goal from Gillingham defender Brent Sancho.
Paraguay doubled their lead through Nelson Cuevas four minutes from time for a scoreline which slightly flattered the South Americans.
Trinidad attacked with gusto, but defeat left them goalless and bottom of the group on their tournament debut.
The Soca Warriors can consider themselves unlucky not to have got off the mark after launching waves of second-half attacks.
It was a disappointing anti-climax for the smallest country, with a population of just 1.3 million, to qualify for the finals.
