Paraguay players offered pick-up trucks reward

Footballers have been rewarded with performance bonuses ranging from money to villas and holidays. But pick-up trucks? And not one, but three?

That is what awaits Paraguay’s squad if they defeat Argentina in Tuesday’s Copa America semi-final.
“Did I promise the squad something? Ask the players, they’ve already won two,” said the country’s Argentine coach Ramon Diaz.
Striker Edgar Benitez added: “We’ve already won two pick-ups off him and we’re going for the third.”
Meanwhile, Diaz said that wanted “revenge” for failing to qualify for last year’s World Cup. The 5-2 defeat by the Argentines in 2013 confirmed their fate.
“I believe in the thirst for revenge of this team, that’s why we’ve got to this stage,” he said.
