Kenji Fukuda makes debut

Japanese striker Kenji Fukuda made his debut for new club Guarani when he came on as a substitute in the Paraguayan league season opener at home to Cerro Porteno on Sunday.

Fukuda, who moved to Guarani on one-year loan deal from J. League club Vegalta Sendai last month, set up a goal but was on the losing side as Cerro Porteno ran out a 3-1 winner.
