‘New contract now’ – Plenty of Blackburn fans excited by latest Ben Brereton Diaz update



Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz continued his sensational start to the 2021/22 campaign by scoring in Chile’s 2-0 win against Paraguay in the World Cup qualifiers yesterday, which has caused a stir among fans of the North West club. 

Brereton Diaz hammered the ball low past Antony Silva to give his side the lead and put them in the driving seat, taking his record for his country to two goals and one assist in seven games, before Mauricio Isla’s goal four minutes later put the result beyond doubt.

The Stoke-on-Trent-born striker qualifies for Chile via his mother and was a surprise pick for the Copa America in the summer.

He’s carried the impressive form he showed in that tournament with him into the 2021/22 campaign, where he has scored 10 goals in 11 Championship games for Rovers – more than doubling his goal tally for the Ewood Park outfit.

The 22-year-old has flown back to South America to represent Chile in their World Cup qualifiers during the international break and sent La Roja fans wild with his opener against Paraguay, which was a must-win game for them.
