With the Paraguayan Miguel Almirón playing almost 80 minutes, Newcastle achieved a key victory for date 31 of the Permier League, beating Wolverhampton 1-0.

Almirón, who was not even on the substitute bench last day of the Premier League (after the Qualifiers), entered after just 13 minutes for the Scottish Ryan Fraser, who had to leave the field of play injured.

The only goal of the game was made by New Zealander Chris Wood, who scored from a penalty, in the 72nd minute of the game. The “Magpies” thus cut a streak of 3 games in a row with defeats and add key points to forget more and more about the problem that the relegation zone represents.

Almirón added his match number 23 this season in the Premier League, of which he started 13 times. Unlike the previous league tournament, the Paraguayan has not yet scored a goal, but he does have a couple of assists.

There is talk that his future would be far from Newcastle, but he had chances again and we will have to see what happens to him when the season ends.

He earned everyone’s respect. For his way of being and always smiling at him, the Paraguayan Robert Rojas earned the affection of the demanding Argentine football. After confirming his delicate injury (fracture of the tibia and fibula), the international soccer environment supported the “hit man” in this difficult moment.

Even from Boca Juniors! A member of the “millionaire’s” eternal rival, doctor Jorge Pablo Batista, left a message of encouragement for the Paraguayan. “The best for you in this difficult moment, River has great professionals who will make you return to the fields as quickly as possible, strength,” said the Boca professional’s writing on social networks.

Batista, who was in charge of Robert Morales’ operation in Argentina, is one of the most respected doctors in the neighboring country, which is why his letter to Rojas generated a stir.

The Paraguayan defender will enter the operating room tomorrow Saturday (April 9) as reported by River’s medical staff.
