A brace from Angel Romero and another goal from Alejandro Romero Gamarra on Monday helped Paraguay secure a comfortable 3-1 victory over Bolivia in Group A of the Copa America tournament underway in Brazil.

Bolivia gained the lead early in the game as Erwin Saavedra converted a penalty in the ninth minute, but the Andean team failed to keep the pressure despite remaining ahead at half time.EFE
