Newcastle fans hail Miguel Almiron after his performance for Paraguay

Miguel Almiron started for Paraguay in the Copa America game against Argentina – and some Newcastle United fans raved about their player for his international performance.

Paraguay drew 1-1 with Argentina in the early hours of Thursday morning, as Lionel Messi’s penalty cancelled out a Richard Sanchez opener.

Almiron delivered an eye-catching display for Paraguay and had plenty of supporters talking about him on social media.

The South American attacker produced the assist for Sanchez’s goal, which game after he had sprinted more than half the pitch in possession before crossing.

His tireless work-rate was a key feature throughout and he produced some great defensive work to dispossess Messi at one stage.

The 25-year-old speed machine can play as a winger or in the number 10 role and he’s already a big favourite at St James’ Park.

Almiron only joined Newcastle back in January and he failed to score or assist in his opening 10 games.

But the dazzling attacker was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet and still had fans on side for his overall performances.

His performances so far in the Copa America have perhaps given Newcastle fans a glimpse into what he can achieve next season.

Here are some Magpies fans praising his display against Argentina:
