Paraguay’s surprises to face Colombia

Paraguay will be the first rival of the Colombian National Team in the 2024 Copa América in the United States. The team led by Daniel Garnero, with irregular performance in the South American Qualifiers – it is in seventh position – will seek to surprise in the group that also It has Brazil and Costa Rica. In the friendlies prior to the start of the tournament, Albirroja recorded a victory (Panama), a draw (Peru) and a defeat (Chile).

In their last training session, the Guaraní team performed general mobility exercises, recreational rondos and definition games. The University of Houston has been the headquarters of the team led by Daniel Garnero two days before the debut against the Tricolor.

The starting XI to face Colombia would have several new features. One of the main ones would be the absence of Gustavo Gómez, the team’s usual captain. Fabián Balbuena, who started in the victory against Panama and in the draw against Peru, would replace him. Omar Alderete would be his partner in the central duo.

According to Jorge Izquierdo, journalist from Nación Media, Rodrigo Morínigo, Libertad’s goalkeeper, was tested in the last practice and would make his debut against the Colombian National Team at the NGR stadium in Houston. “His official debut could take place in nothing more and nothing less than in the Copa América and against a powerful Colombian National Team,” he said.

Alex Arce, Liga de Quito striker, would also make his debut and would be another new addition to Garnero’s XI. In the last semester, the attacker played 22 games, scored 17 goals and gave 6 assists. Adam Bareiro would go to the bench, while Miguel Almirón, Matías Rojas and Julio Encisco would make up the second line of midfielders.

Regarding the right wing, another of Garnero’s doubts for the debut, Iván Ramírez would have won the position over Gustavo Velásquez, who was the scorer of the goal in the victory against Panama.
