Carlos Coronel becomes a Paraguayan
August 25, 2023
Carlos Coronel has been called up to the Paraguay national team for its first set of World Cup qualifiers, September 7 and 12. If you are wondering how a Brazilian gets to play for Paraguay, Coronel recently got naturalized. He was born in the border town of Puerto Murtinho, and his mother is Paraguayan.
Coronel joins another naturalized Paraguayan, Argentine-born Alejandro Romero Gamarra on the roster. Remember him? Denis Hamlett sure does!
