The Paraguayan soccer player, Julio Enciso, made himself felt on social networks after adding his first minutes officially with the Brighton shirt; he played in the 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace in Premier League 2.

“Thank you my God for giving me this opportunity to add minutes. Thanks to all the people who sent me messages of support. Thank God it was just a blow, the wound did not open. We continue to learn and improve,” was the message left by the “Jewel” on her twitter account.

During the game against Crystal Palace, Julio ended up rolling on the pitch after suffering a foul from a rival player. In social networks they treated him as exaggerated, but what many do not know is that the contact was on his face, in the same area in which he had suffered the delicate injury after a clash with Luis Zárate, defender of Olimpia .

The youth squad from La Libertad was not called up by Brighton’s main team for Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut against Manchester United, a match that ended up being favorable for the “Seagulls”. For this reason, Enciso had to make his debut with the Sub 21 (Reserve).

The talented 18-year-old Paraguayan player arrived in England less than two months ago and is in the midst of adjusting to a new culture, a new language and more.
