Miguel Almiron picked up an assist in his first game back from the Premier League’s COVID-19 stoppage as the former Atlanta United standout helped lead Newcastle United to a 3-0 home win over Sheffield United Sunday.
The Paraguayan midfielder was influential throughout and was denied his own goal when his first-time attempt went directly into goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
Almiron, who played the entire 90 minutes, set up Joelinton for Newcastle’s third goal against a Sheffield United side reduced to 10 men five minutes into the second half on John Egan’s second bookable offense.

That makes him the 12th U.S. international (& 7th U.S. non-keeper) to reach 100 PL games. #RoundNumbers
