Two cracking goals from Miguel Almiron as he prepares for fourth season with Newcastle United – Watch here

2 weeks ago

On Thursday, the agent who represents Miguel Almiron was talking about his client’s situation at Newcastle United.

Daniel Campos stating that the 28 year old is going to be staying at St James Park.

Miguel Almiron having a tough season, one of the Newcastle players who suffered most under Steve Bruce. Repeatedly played as an extra defender, instead of playing to his strengths further up the pitch, the clueless and negative tactics dragging down Almiron and so many other players.

However, Miguel Almiron ended the season well, the final seven games seeing Miggy start six and come on as a sub in the other. The Paraguayan international international helping Newcastle complete a remarkable second half of the season performance, 38 points from the final 19 games and the stand out moment for Almiron, the stunning match winning goal against Palace.

The NUFC player’s agent saying Miguel Almiron ‘had good performances in recent times (towards the end of the season) and we are happy with that,’ Campos declaring ‘everything is normal and that he is at the best club (Newcastle United) in the world.’

Following on from his agents positive word’s yesterday, today Miguel Almiron showed what great spirits he is in.

Paraguay playing away in South Korea, Almiron’s last international action before he takes a short break ahead of pre-season.

The NUFC first team squad set to start pre-season preparations three weeks today (Friday 1 July) and it remains to be seen whether internationals get extra time off this summer. However, not a lot of time to play with as in only eight weeks time the Premier League season kicks off.

Miguel Almiron scored twice for his country today, the first time ever, this brace of goals the fifth and sixth that Miggy has scored for Paraguay.

Playing in a central role behind the main striker, on 23 minutes a through ball sent Miguel Almiron on his way. The Newcastle player showing great determination and strength to hold off the South Korea defender, then shoot from just inside the area low and across the keeper into the far right bottom corner.

Even better was to come though.

Four minutes after the break, Miguel Almiron receiving a pass towards the right side of the penalty area, the NUFC player cutting inside and striking a lovely shot into the top left corner from around 20 yards. Not quite as good as his Newcastle goal against Crystal Palace last season but still a quality finish.

South Korea though have some quality players and no one more so than Son Heung-min, winner of the Premier League golden boot despite his 23 goals not including a single penalty, the Spurs player pulling one back for his country on 66 minutes.

Then in the third minute of added time (with Miguel Almiron having been subbed on 75 minutes) Jung Woo-Young grabbing a late late equaliser for South Korea.

A great day personally for Miguel Almiron as he can now look forward to next season at St James Park.

Though for his country, that now makes it only one win in eleven matches for Paraguay.
