Nov 06, 2021

Asuncion (Paraguay) Nov 6: Oscar and Angel Romero have been recalled to Paraguay's squad for 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Colombia, the Paraguayan Football Association said on Friday.
The twin brothers have not played competitively since August, when they both parted ways with Argentine Primer Division club San Lorenzo.
As expected, new manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto also named Newcastle United playmaker Miguel Almiron and Palmeiras defender Gustavo Gomez in his provisional 28-man squad.
Barros Schelotto was appointed Paraguay boss last month after the sacking of fellow Argentine Eduardo Berizzo.
Paraguay will play Chile in Asuncion on November 11 and Colombia in Barranquilla five days later.
The Guaranies are currently eighth in the 10-team South American qualifying group. The top four teams will progress to the group stage of next year's World Cup in Qatar while the fifth-ranked side will advance to an intercontinental playoff.
Following is the Paraguay squad:
Goalkeepers: Antony Silva (Puebla), Gerardo Ortiz (Once Caldas) and Alfredo Aguilar (Olimpia).
Defenders: Gustavo Gomez (Palmeiras), Junior Alonso (Atletico Mineiro), Fabin Balbuena (Dinamo Moscow), Omar Alderete (Valencia), Alberto Espinola (Cerro), David Martinez and Robert Rojas (River Plate), Juan Escobar (Cruz Azul) and Santiago Arzamendia (Cadiz).
