Newcastle fears eased following Miguel Almiron injury scare


An update on the fitness of Newcastle United attacker Miguel Almiron has been forthcoming online this weekend.

PL stars suffering

Almiron is of course just one of an absolute host of Premier League players currently away on international duty.

Despite the new season being just weeks old, delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic have seen international football return for the 2nd time in the space of a month this week.

The hectic nature of the schedule, though, is beginning to take its toll.

Recent days have seen players from across the Premier League landscape succumb to respective fitness concerns.

Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy and Spurs summer signing Sergio Reguilon are just two of those to have handed their clubs an altogether unwelcome early season scare.

‘Wasn’t as serious as expected’

As outlined above, meanwhile, the latest individual from the English top-flight to have pulled up with a problem whilst on international duty was Miguel Almiron.

Newcastle star Almiron was handed a starting berth in Paraguay’s World Cup qualifying meeting with Peru on Thursday.

With just minutes to go in the 2-2 stalemate, though, the explosive attacker was forced off, to be replaced by Antonio Sanabria.

Almiron was clearly in discomfort as he made his way off the pitch, leading to understandable concern surrounding the 26-year-old’s wellbeing.

Such fears, however, have since been firmly eased.

As revealed by journalist Roberto Rojas, who covers Paraguayan football, the signs for Almiron, as things stand, are ‘all good’.

This comes amid claims that the Magpies star’s problem is not as serious as was first expected, with Almiron likely to be in contention when his country take on Venezuela on Tuesday:
