Paraguay had a great day against Chile, all the players put in a good performance and made a very good impression. But the negative note of the Perugia was the injury of Antonio Barreiro, who retired crying from the field of play and took his knee.
“The Devil” jumped onto the field in the 77th minute, replacing Miguel Almiron. True to his style, the Libertad player has been enthusiastic, determined and has won every air ball since his entry.
Unfortunately, Barreiro fell badly after a jump in the 94th minute and suffered a severe knee injury. He was left lying on the ground and had to lift him on a stretcher with tears in his eyes.
The official report of the medical part of the Paraguay national team is waiting and I hope it is just a scare for an entire country. The affection of red-haired fans on social networks was felt with messages of encouragement for “The Devil”.
