With an electrifying debut by Argentine Juan Ignacio Vieyra, Real España ended their preseason for the 2023 Clausura Tournament with a 2-2 draw visiting the Luis Girón del Parrillas One stadium in La Lima, Cortés.
The aurinegro team came out with a tactical stoppage of 4-4-2 that gave them a partial 1-0 victory at halftime after a penalty scored by Ramiro Rocca, also from Argentina, half an hour into the game.

Initially, the Uruguayan coach Julio ‘Palomo’ Rodríguez’s Machine was insipid in the midfield with little offensive productivity, which was organized by wingers Jhow Benavídez and Alejandro Reyes, ending the first part being dominated and without direct shots on goal.
For the complement, the Argentine midfielder Juan Ignacio Vieyra made his entry and debut instead of Reyes, however, the second chapter barely started and Parrillas One made it 1-1 from the penalty mark by the work of Colombian Roberto Riascos.
Real España began to stalk the rival goal thanks to the dynamism provided by Juan Vieyra, who made two dangerous shots from the edge of the area that skimmed the metal.
In the final stretch, Parrillas turned the score around against the double orchestrated by Riascos, but when it seemed that the victory would go to Lima, Vieyra’s magic appeared: a bombshell free kick almost 30 meters from the goal, a shot and great goal!
That was how the aurinegros put an end to their preparatory activity for the contest that starts next Saturday against Héctor Vargas’ Victoria at the Morazán Stadium.
Palomo Rodríguez remains undefeated on the university bench after four friendly matches: 0-0 against Génesis Comayagua, 3-2 against Achuapa from Guatemala and 1-0 against Oro Verde.
