Paraguay’s 2nd Division Soccer Team Need Money

Jude Yager, Writer

Paraguay’s 2nd division haven’t been getting playing time or getting paid ever since the Covid 19 pandemic. “It was a complicated year, especially for the second division,” said Luis Kanonnikoff, general-secretary of Paraguay’s soccer association. He said there were four monthly payments to players, not three.” Sergio Rojas, a 28-year-old midfielder at Sportivo Ameliano, gets out of bed very early to load his small car with boxes of eggs. He travels 25 kilometers to the capital, Asuncion, so he can train. And after a shower he rushes to his new job. He charges $2.5 for 30 eggs. He does this since he doesn’t get paid for soccer. Midfielder Nicolás Caballero sets up street food such as barbeque in order to get the money they need to survive. Their goalie had to even start a woodworking business to get his money. This is really bad for the 2nd division team needing money to survive and to get paid.
