Paraguay Abroad: Cardozo and Melagarejo at the double in Portugal

A good week for our boys in Portugal with Oscar Cardozo and Lorenzo Melgarejo scoring two in their respecitive games. Further afield in Chile, Rodrigo Rojas was on hand to score a 93rd minute goal, his second for O’Higgins in four games. Digno Gonzalez (Atletico Huila) and Antony Silva and Robin Ramirez (both Deportes Tolima) continue to battle it out for top spot in Colombia. Finally in Perú the strike is over and Ramón ‘Tacuarita’ Cardozo got the better of Mario Villasanti in the meeting of their new clubs.
