Miguel Almiron was a big hit for Newcastle fans tonight in Paraguay’s Copa America against Qatar.
Miguel had some slick passes and was the standout performer for his country as Paraguay took a two goal to nil lead early in the second half.
But Qatar were excellent throughout this game as they pulled back both goals highlighted by a world class strike by Almoez Ali.
In what was a disappointing result for Paraguay, it does appear that Miguel Almiron is fully fit after his recent hamstring injury.
Here are what some fans and others tweeted about Almiron’s performance:

Almiron has been impressive! Beautiful assist just there. First half, his corner got Paraguay a penalty! #NUFC

Safe to say Miguel Almiron was a key factor for the 2 (even the offside goal) for Paraguay. Having a great night so far here in Rio. #NUFC
