Uruguay could not finish the match. After a first half in which they had dominated and achieved a lot, La Celeste left Panama alive and their fans, 29 minutes into the second half, burst into a demand. “Luchoooo, Luchoooo,” they shouted Luis Suarez. A few seconds later, the claim was reiterated when the image of the protagonist, standing on the side of the bank, appeared on one of the screens at the Hard Rock stadium in Miami. However, Marcelo Bielsa did not let himself be carried away by the tribune. He supported Darwin Núñez on the court, who until then had not had a good game. But the Liverpool forward agreed with the Argentine coach…

At 40′ from ST, after a shot by Maximiliano Araújo that bounced off a defender, Núñez took the ball from the air with a left foot shot that hit Mosquera and began to lead to victory: 2-0. Suárez never entered and Darwin ended up vindicated after missing some chances of dangerwith a definition that generated a relief in Bielsa: he celebrated with his fists forward.

Darwin Nuñez scored the second against Panama

He who does not bet, does not win

In the end I will always miss goals. I’m going to miss 5 or 10, but I’m going to try 11 times. That’s what a striker has to do, right? When you miss five, you have to keep trying and never lower your arms, because if not, in the end, if you lower your arms, nothing will come of it,” said the former Peñarol, Almería and Benfica striker in a press conference and in a sort of self-help speech.

Núñez, 25 years old and born in Artigas, once again converted, as he did in that double of 20 against Argentina in November 2023, for the Qualifiers, in La Bombonera. He was also the one who scored a hat-trick in the 4-0 win against Mexico, in the friendly prior to the debut in the Copa América. That is, he scored four goals in the last two games. It’s more, He scored nine goals in the last six consecutive games with the Celeste. It’s sharp. The United States and Bolivia, the other members of the group, already suffer from it beforehand.

The scorer who does not think and act

“I wasn’t expecting it (the ball) either. Luckily I stayed there and didn’t think. I said ‘here I hit him’. The obvious importance of starting winning beyond the ups and downs of the game. Yes, it is important to always start winning in the debut, we know that the first game is difficult, but hey, we got the result and the truth is that we are very happy,” he said about his goal in the baptism of the team that, like Argentina, He lifted the Copa América 15 times.

“We started the first half well. Then, in the first 15 or 20 minutes of the second, they were better. After the second goal we made the right decisions again. We deserved the victory,” said the man on the playing field who, in his celebration of the goal, made the gesture requesting silence after some murmurs that he had heard. Despite this gesture, he highlighted the general support of the fans: “They are always with us. They are going to support us in practices, in the hotel… The affection is beautiful.”
