Newcastle United appears to have gotten through Miguel Almiron’s injury concern during the break.

The 29-year-old was in South America as a Paraguayan representative and seemed to be injured during their opening match against Peru.

Almiron played the entire 90 minutes, but after the final buzzer, he appeared to be in severe discomfort. He left the field with a limp, indicating that he had been hurt.

His international manager, though, claimed that it was only fatigue and expressed his hope that Miggy will be fully healthy for Paraguay’s upcoming match against Venezuela.

Guillermo Barros Schelotto, the leader of Paraguay, saw it happen on Tuesday night, and his wish was granted.

There is no harm to Miguel Almiron.
Tuesday night, Salomon Rondon, a former Newcastle striker, converted a penalty kick in stoppage time to give Venezuela a 1-0 victory over Paraguay.

Almiron was on the losing team, but at least he got to participate in the World Cup qualifier. Despite a potential injury, Miggy started the match against Venezuela and played for 85 minutes before being replaced.

With nearly a full 90 minutes remaining, it is evident that Newcastle should not be concerned about Almiron’s fitness.

It follows that he will be available for selection when the Magpies play Brentford on Saturday night. The speedster should be benched for the match against the Bees, a pundit claimed even before his injury scare.

That was the opinion of former player Robbie Mustoe, who recommended Howe replace Almiron after the 3-1 loss to Brighton.

Almiron may still be dropped from Howe’s starting lineup, but it now appears that any decision he takes will be tactical rather than mandated.

Although Almiron is having a tough time with his form, the fact that he is healthy is fantastic news because Newcastle United will have a very busy month in September.
