ASUNCION, PARAGUAY (AP) - Paraguay will face Guatemala in an international friendly on Aug. 15 in Washington.

It will be one of two matches that day at RFK Stadium. El Salvador takes on Jamaica in the other.

The match will be the first in charge for Paraguay coach Gerardo Pelusso. He replaced Francisco Arce, who was fired last month after Paraguay lost 3-1 at Bolivia in a World Cup qualifier.

Paraguay has only four points in five matches and seems unlikely to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Paraguay has two qualifying matches in September, playing at Argentina on Sept. 7 followed by a match Sept. 11 at home against Venezuela.
