Newcastle United: Miguel Almiron magnificent for Paraguay versus Argentina

Newcastle United: Miguel Almiron magnificent for Paraguay versus Argentina - Newcastle United News

Newcastle United star Miguel Almiron has been hailed for a ‘magnificent’ display by Marca, as he won Paraguay a penalty versus Argentina in a FIFA World Cup qualifying game.

The spot kick was converted by Angel Romero, with Nicolas Gonzalez equalising and Lionel Messi having a goal ruled out by VAR for a foul in the build-up later on.

Should Almiron be starting for Newcastle?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Nonetheless, Almiron was instrumental in his country gaining a point from the clash, which will surely please Newcastle fans when he returns to St. James’ Park after the international break.

Almiron was magnificent

Indeed, Almiron was magnificent in general for Paraguay, as he won a very impressive seven duels and made no fewer than six recoveries in the game (Fotmob), showing off his ever-impressive work rate.

Who was the last club Rafa managed before Newcastle?

The attacking midfielder player was fouled three times, showing that he was a menace all match, and also made a key pass and had a 100% success rate in dribbles and tackles, highlighting his influence on his team.

Almiron needs to replicate this display for Newcastle

Indeed, the challenge for Almiron will be to now replicate these kinds of influential displays at club level.

The £14.4m-valued star has not exactly had the best of starts to the 2020/21 term in the North East, scoring just one goal in ten appearances in all competitions, although he has gotten himself three assists (Transfermarkt).

Perhaps he needs to knuckle himself down to one position, having played in four different roles for Steve Bruce’s team so far this season.

Nonetheless, it was a magnificent performance that he put in for Paraguay and supporters of the Tyneside club will now be hoping that he can replicate his form for the Magpies.
