All the action from the Group B game between Spain and Paraguay in Jeonju.

1150 BST: The referee blows for full-time and the Spain players celebrate reaching the second stage of the tournament.

89 mins: Paraguay keep the Spanish defence busy but the South American players seem already resigned to defeat.

86 mins: Roque Santa Cruz finds a bit of space and gets a header in but he cannot direct it onto the target.

83 mins: Spain increase their advantage with a penalty from Fernando Hierro. Raul receives the ball in the box, turns well and shoots. Chilavert comfortably collects but the referee has blown for a foul on Raul. Hierro steps up and sends Chilavert the wrong way.
Spain 3-1 Paraguay

78 mins: Paraguay win a free-kick 10 yards outside the box and there is a buzz in the crowd as Jose Luis Chilavert runs up the field to take it. It is a well-taken kick but Ikor Casillas does well to get down to his left to hold it. Casillas tries to get the ball back down the field before Chilavert can get back to his goal but Roque Santa Cruz impedes him and is booked.

76 mins: Paraguay make another substitution - Estanislao Struway comes on for Denis Caniza.

73 mins: Paraguay are pushing forward but without any real purpose and are now looking vulnerable to Spain's counter-attacks.

68 mins: Spain take the lead after a mistake by Jose Luis Chilavert. De Pedro crosses from the left wing. Chilavert comes out and flaps at the ball - he misses it and it is turned in by the chest of Fernando Morientes.
Spain 2-1 Paraguay

64 mins: Fernando Morientes has a great opportunity when put through in the Paraguay box. He clips the ball over the advancing Jose Luis Chilavert but also over the crossbar.

63 mins: Roque Santa Cruz beats Fernando Hierro and takes the ball to the goal-line. Goalkeeper Iker Casillas is committed but no Paraguay player is in support and Santa Cruz' lay-back finds a Spanish defender.

62 mins: Paraguay bring on Jorge Campos for Jose Cardozo.

60 mins: Carles Puyol's cross is too high for Fernando Morientes but falls invitingly for Juanfran - however, he has to volley it with his weaker right foot and it goes lamely wide.

59 mins: Paraguay's Diego Gavilan is booked for pulling the shirt of Juanfran as the Spaniard goes past him on the left wing.

57 mins: Jose Luis Chilavert ventures out of his box with the ball for the first time, dribbling to the left-hand side of the pitch and thumping the ball clear.

53 mins: Spain's pressure is rewarded when Fernando Morientes equalises. Just minutes after coming on, the Real Madrid striker rises above the Paraguay defence at a corner and heads home powerfully.
Spain 1-1 Paraguay

50 mins: A goalmouth scramble ensues after Raul and Jose Luis Chilavert go for the same ball and both miss. The ball is finally scrambled clear by Paraguay but the linesman had already raised his offside flag.

48 mins: Raul is pushed over and Spain get a free-kick 10 yards outside the box but De Pedro's curler does not trouble Jose Luis Chilavert.

1102 BST: Spain kick off the second half, having brought on Fernando Morientes and Ivan Helguerra for Diego Tristan and Luis Enrique.

1048 BST: The referee blows his whistle to signal the end of the first 45 minutes.
Half-time: Spain 0-1 Paraguay

41 mins: Spain seem to have lost their earlier impetus and Paraguay begin to push forward a bit more.

34 mins: Iker Casillas strays to towards the 18-yard line to meet a forward ball but then realises he can't make it and is caught in no man's land. But Paraguay cannot capitalise and the ball is bundled out for a corner.

33 mins: Paraguay get a bit of respite with a couple of attacks of their own, the second of which ends with Roberto Acuna shooting limply wide.

31 mins: De Pedro feeds Raul near the penalty spot. Raul controls the ball well and attempts an ambitious shot on the turn which goes wide.

28 mins: Raul picks up the ball in the centre circle and strides forward before threading a perfectly weighted ball through to Diego Tristan. However, Jose Luis Chilavert reacts well and rushes out bravely to foil the Spaniard.

26 mins: Spain are piling forward at every opportunity but their possession is not yielding much in the way of clearcut chances.

23 mins: Francisco De Pedro beats his man and tears down the left wing before unleashing an outswinging low cross which Jose Luis Chilavert does well to come out and claim.

20 mins: Spain flow forward and the ball finds its way to Raul in the box - he turns and shoots but his effort goes just over.

18 mins: Carles Puyol creates an overlap on the right and whips across a low cross but Diego Tristan cannot quite get a touch on the ball.

17 mins: Francisco Arce causes the Spanish problems, sending in a dipping cross but it is scrambled clear by Spain.

11 mins: Raul attempts to chip Jose Luis Chilavert but the Paraguayan goalkeeper is able to tip the ball over his bar.

10 mins: Paraguay take the lead through a freak own goal. Jose Luis Chilavert takes a free-kick from his own half. It is headed clear by the Spanish defence but only to Francisco Arce whose low drive is parried by Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas. The ball then rebounds off Spain's defender Carles Puyol and goes into the net.
Spain 0-1 Paraguay

8 mins: Ruben Baraja fells Carlos Paredes - it is a bad challenge but the Paraguayan embarks on some rolling around of dizzying proportions and the Spaniard is booked.

5 mins: Spain counter-attack and Diego Tristan tries to angle a pass across the face of the goal to Raul but it is too strong.

3 mins: Francisco Arce whips in a cross which Fernando Hierro heads clear.

2 mins: It is a scrappy opening but Paraguay enjoy most of the early possession.

1000 BST: The Egyptian referee blows his whistle and Paraguay kick off.
