Huge Set Back: Newcastle Suffer a Triple injury blow as Coach issues statement on Miguel Almiron injury

The Newcastle United forward Miguel Almiron experienced a muscle problem during Paraguay’s draw with Peru, but national team coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto said the player is ‘fine’.

In the last seconds of Thursday night’s 0-0 draw at the Estadio Antonio Aranda, Almiron gave up. Almiron was forced to leave the World Cup qualifying match after collapsing late in the game and requiring medical attention on the field.

As a result, Paraguay ended the game with ten men, although it was evident why Almiron couldn’t continue. For Newcastle manager Eddie Howe, the wincing 29-year-old’s agonized expression as he walked away—at one point he even covered his face with his hand—will have been concerning.

The Paraguayan Football Association has recently sent the following statement to the media: “The national team’s medical staff advises that player Miguel Almiron presented with a sustained muscle contracture during the encounter versus Peru. The player is engaged in healing duties. He will undergo additional supplementary studies in accordance with the progression of his rehabilitation.

Although Schelotto had earlier made an effort to ease any injury concerns, Almiron has not yet been declared ineligible for Tuesday’s match against Venezuela. In fact, Paraguay’s manager expressed optimism that Almiron will be able to play in his team’s forthcoming qualifier on Tuesday night.

Schelotto told reporters the night before the Paraguay FA statement, “He’s fine, very tired, cramped.” “It’s his first game, he’s gone a long distance, he doesn’t have much time to recover, and their passion motivates them to give it their all. He is not injured in any manner. I wish him the best of luck so that he can play against Venezuela.

Newcastle will be updated on developments as Howe gears up his team for a crucial matchup against Brentford next Saturday. Since the majority of his team left for international duty after last week’s loss against Brighton, Howe is currently working with a smaller group.

Among the athletes who have undergone testing are Dan Burn, Tino Livramento, Sean Longstaff, Anthony Gordon, Jacob Murphy, and Harvey Barnes. are some of the athletes who have recently been put to the test at Newcastle’s training facility. If Almiron is not fully recovered, Barnes or Murphy would be likely candidates to enter the starting lineup.
