Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to a quite shocking moment from the international break, as Miguel Almiron committed an absolute horror tackle in a “friendly” against Mexico.
International breaks can be pretty dull for European football fans, but South American nations do not know the meaning of an “international friendly”.
Nowhere was that more evident than in Levi’s Stadium in California on Tuesday evening, where Mexico took on Almiron’s Paraguay.
Pl>ymaker FC Exclusive: Jermaine Jenas reveals why Tyne-Wear is a more intense derby than anything London can offer – check out the video below….
Mexico went three goals to the good in just 24 minutes, and the tackles were absolutely flying in throughout the all-action affair.
Almiron came on in the 56th minute with his side down 3-0, instantly played a part in their opening goal to make it 3-1, and was then promptly sent off for a truly woeful challenge.
There is no word yet on if Vazquez did anything to provoke Almiron’s truly heinous tackle, but the Twitter reactions down below are certainly having their say on the matter…
Wanted to make sure he was fit for Monday, get in there lad ??⚫️?

Anyone remember when Alan Shearer kicked Neil Lennon in the head? Some times good players do daft things!

We’ve seen worse than that and ref or authorities have done nothing . This season as well. A few man city players against #nufc and who (apart from th ref and @EPL And media) forget Jordan pickford on #rondon !

Bad tackle totally deserved the red hopefully he doesn’t do that in our matches. He has bags of talent but needs to make sure he cuts that out of his game typical south American challenge when your sides getting beat that is. It was petulant but he is a quality player.
