Newcastle star suffers injury and will miss World Cup qualifying games

Eddie Howe must have wondered when his bad luck would end because Miguel Almiron required medical attention after 30 minutes.

At the time, Newcastle United and Bournemouth drew 0-0.

Eddie Howe had previously left out eleven (ELEVEN) players—all outfielders—from Newcastle United’s starting lineup going into the game.

Miguel Almiron was forced to leave Bournemouth after being unable to continue.

Naturally, an international fortnight is approaching, and Miguel Almiron is essential to Paraguay’s chances of qualifying for the World Cup. This month, they play two important group qualifiers against Colombia and Chile.


Roberto Rojas on X: "Been told for the time being that Miguel Almiron's  injury is a muscle strain 🇵🇾❌ Not a serious one, but it'll be enough for  him to miss out


Expert on Paraguayan football Roberto Rojas has recently revealed that Miguel Almiron will miss both of these World Cup group qualifying matches, as verified by the national team’s official social media accounts (see below).

Miguel Almiron had “a Grade 1 biceps femoris muscle injury on the right thigh,” according to the Paraguay national setup.

Given that Paraguay reports a “Grade 1,” what is the absolute worst or best result that may be achieved?

Grade 1 — mild muscle strain or pull

Grade 2 — partial muscle tear

Grade 3 — complete muscle tear

So the good news is that Grade 1 is at the right end of things.

For an injury like this, the recovery period may only be a few days. Although Miguel Almiron’s injury has prevented him from playing in these two international matches, there is still a chance that he will be well enough to return in time for Chelsea’s match on Saturday, November 25, or at the very least, very soon after (if Grade 3).
