With the Paraguayan Superclasico just two days away, Cerro Porteno's Juan Manuel Iturbe has admitted he cannot wait for the clash...
"It is going to be a great show, and a day that I have dreamt about for a long time. It will be extremely exciting; as well as that I hope that it will be a great day for those in the Cerro colours," 'La Pulguita' stated in a press conference held on Wednesday evening.
Coming off two excellent cameos for the Olla following his move back to Paraguay, the 17-year-old was honoured by an invitation to meet President Lugo at his Asuncion residence; and Iturbe admitted that while meeting the statesman he could not resist extending an invitation of his own.
"I am grateful for the invitation, I got to know the palace and he wanted to meet my family and me; we never spoke on the subject of national teams, we just talked about football with [Cerro president] Juan Jose Zapag.
"I told him that he was invited to come on Saturday. Now it's all up to him," the forward affirmed before collapsing into laughter.
