Carlos Ruiz scored from an 84th-minute penalty to help Guatemala to a 3-3 draw against Paraguay in an entertaining friendly Wednesday.

Ruiz also earned an earlier penalty that Marco Pappa converted, and Manuel Leon scored in Guatemala's first positive result in three matches against Paraguay this year.

Hernan Perez, Jonathan Fabbro and Oscar Cardozo scored for Paraguay during a match it led twice. Guatemala also held a lead late in the first and early in the second half.

In a warm up for September World Cup qualifiers, the two nations played their highest scoring contest in 11 meetings.
