USA vs. Paraguay, Copa America 2016: Full Match Highlights

Re-live the magic!

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The United States men's national team is heading to the quarterfinals of the Copa America Centenario after a 1-0 win over Paraguay in their final group play match.

Here are the highlights via FOX Soccer:

Clint Dempsey scored the match's lone goal and the game winner the 27th minute. He now has 51 in his international career, hot on the heels of the retired Landon Donovan, who scored 57.

DeAndre Yedlin was sent off with his second yellow in the 48th minute.

John Anthony Brooks was named Budweiser Man of the Match for his incredible performance on defense. Whether the ball was being played in the air or on the ground, he was there stopping the attack.

It was an ugly, ugly match, but the Jurgen "Cool Hand" Klinsmann and the United States got the job done.

As Jeff Carlisle of ESPN FC noted, "This result was no oil painting but sometimes cheap velvet is enough to do the trick."

Paraguay and Costa Rica are eliminated. Columbia and the United States are onto the quarterfinals of the Copa America Centenario.

The U.S. has advanced out of Group A and will face either Peru, Brazil, or Ecuador from Group B. Additionally, they'll either be heading to East Rutherford, New Jersey or Seattle, Washington. They're most likely be playing in East Rutherford unless Costa Rica defeats Colombia.
