Japan’s Yuki Abe is erring on the side of caution ahead of the World Cup knockout clash with Paraguay in Pretoria tonight.

The Urawa Reds defender is aware that the South American outfit are very strong and knows they will be a tough opponent to beat.

“Paraguay's defence is compactly organised. They have physical strength but are also good on the ball. I think they will be difficult opponents," Abe said.
