Miguel Almiron goes goal crazy with 2nd goal (excellent strike) in 3 games for Paraguay – Video

1 year ago

Miguel Almiron is away with Paraguay for a couple of friendlies.

Next Tuesday they play a friendly against Saudi Arabia, however, today they were playing away in Bulgaria.

Ahead of the match, Miguel Almiron took time out to meet up with the Bulgarian Mags (see photo below).

The meet up clearly doing the Newcastle star no harm, as he played well before being subbed in the 89th minute.

Miguel Almiron has now passed the one year anniversary of his last goal in club football, back when playing for Atlanta United.

However, after 22 international appearances without a goal, Almiron got his first one for Paraguay in September as they beat Jordan 4-2.

It is now officially goal fever, at least at international level, as today he made it two goals in his last three appearances for his country.

An excellent left footed strike from outside the box into the bottom corner (watch it below).

Almiron also managing to pick up a booking in the 85th minute.

Only 500 spectators there to see the Miguel Almiron goal, which turned out to be the match winner,  1-0 victory for Paraguay in Bulgaria.
