Diaz was appointed Paraguay boss in 2014 and led the side to the Copa semifinals last summer, eliminating Brazil in the process.

However, La Albirroja finished dead last in their Copa group this year, finishing the tournament with one draw and two losses, scoring just one goal in their three matches.
