Newcastle United supporters have reacted on social media, as Miguel Almiron was sent off for Paraguay against Serbia last night.
The South Americans were beaten 1-0 in the friendly match, with former Magpies striker Aleksandar Mitrovic scoring the winner in injury time.
Almiron picked up a booking for dissent just before half-time, and then saw yellow a second time on 54 minutes after being deemed to have dived.
It is the third time this season Almiron has been cautioned for simulation, and the diminutive playmaker must cut it out of his game.
It has been a testing start to his Newcastle career following his £20 million transfer from Atlanta United in January (ESPN).
Almiron is yet to score for the Toon Army, and should be focusing on trying to break his duck rather than getting involved in the dark side of the game.
Newcastle fans react
Many Newcastle fans took to Twitter to express their frustrations with Almiron, who has everything to prove now in their eyes.
Not surprised he fives all the time and I hate seeing that even from our own

Almirón clearly not in a great place. Can’t help thinking he could still make it at #NUFC. Has ability, flair and tries hard. If he breaks his duck and takes pressure off himself he could still do well. https://t.co/Jdsx8tCvkO

Love Miguel Almiròn to bits but…
He needs to cut out the diving every game he’s got a couple of yellow cards for #NUFC for that very thing.
Disappointing with the ability he has that he thinks he has to do that.

Miguel Almirón has been asking to get sent off for diving ever since he joined #NUFC. Twice booked this season for it already. I’m just glad he got one while playing for Paraguay. Actually the best of both worlds, he’ll get a rest now.
