Gustavo Velásquez was the author of the only goal of the game. Those led by Daniel Garnero also win again after four consecutive games without achieving victory.

The National Team will debut against Paraguay on June 24 at 5:00 pm in Houston, Texas. The Albirroja’s performance has not been the best and there is a lot of criticism for her game. However, Garnero sees the Copa América as a possibility to start making a team for the Qualifiers.

“Hopefully it will serve to ratify the confidence and assurances that every footballer needs. We leave with the feeling that we are improving and growing“, highlighted the Argentine coach who is already thinking about Colombia, a National Team that is undefeated in 23 matches without losing, 20 with Néstor Lorenzo.

Paraguay’s balance in the last friendlies

The Paraguay National Team has played three friendly matches, with a balance of a draw against Peru, a tough defeat against Chile 3-0 and a fair victory against Panama. The redhead has not won in several matches, the last one was against Bolivia in the Qualifiers.

Paraguay scores a goal again after eight months and Almirón, the great figure

A lot of criticism, since the Qualifiers it has had Paraguay due to the lack of effectiveness in the last quarter of the field. After five consecutive games, Garnero’s team finds the goal again, this time it was with Gustavo Velásquez, forward of Newell’s Old Boys.

On the other hand, the great figure of Paraguay and the man to reference is Miguel Almirón, on the Newcastle wing falls all the responsibility of creating game ideas and breaking down rival defenses. The aerial game continues to be one of the great virtues of the albirroja and the ’10’ is in charge of throwing crosses into the area. In the last friendly he was not included for prevention, that’s what the coach said. He hopes to have him for the Cup. “Miguel Almirón comes with a slight overload and I decided not to include him so that next week he can train alongside his teammates.”
