Attention Argentina: we got rid of Darwin Núñez
The Celeste coaching staff had decided to summon Darwin Núñez, a Benfica player who is having a great presence in Portugal.
In his last game with Benfica, scored a goal and provided two assists in his team’s win over Sporting Braga. In addition, the Uruguayan has five goals in nine games in the Portuguese league.
However, this Monday, the Uruguayan Soccer Association announced that “the AUF Health Department communicates that the soccer player Darwin Nunez, in the match played yesterday by the Portuguese league, he was replaced by pain in his right knee. In subsequent studies, a tendon inflammatory process was found in his knee, with patellar bone edema, which disables him to participate in the Uruguayan team in the matches against Argentina and Bolivia. “

Of course, Suárez is still on fire
The Pistolero returned to convert a goal for Atlético de Madrid who lost two points in his visit to the Mestalla against Valencia, which was a 3-3 draw, where the Colchonero won 3-1. Suárez scored the first goal for Simeone’s team, thus reaching seven goals in La Liga, being the second top scorer behind Karim Benzema.
