Enciso will thus join Miguel Almirón and Braian Ojeda as the Paraguayan players who will be present in the 2022-23 season of the most competitive league in the world.

It took more than a decade for at least more than two Paraguayans to meet again in the First Division of English football. In fact, the last time there were several compatriots at the same time was between 2010 and 2011, when Roque Santa Cruz, Cristian Riveros, Paulo Da Silva and Antolín Alcaraz were present.

Until the end of 2010, Santa Cruz wore the Manchester City shirt and in 2011 he returned to Blackburn Rovers, the club that had acquired him from Bayern Munich in 2007.

Cristian Riveros, for his part, had arrived at Sunderland after the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, joining Paulo Da Silva, who had already worn this shirt since 2009 and did so until January 2011 before being transferred to Zaragoza.

While also in the second half of 2010 and after his great performance in South Africa 2010, Antolín Alcaraz arrived at Wigan where he became one of the most regular players in his first two seasons until being transferred to Everton, where he played until 2015. .

Since then, the maximum number of Paraguayan players that coincided in this league was two, with Fabián Balbuena at West Ham and Miguel Almirón at Newcastle between 2019 and 2021, before the defender was transferred to Russian football.

Now, with Almirón, Ojeda and Enciso, the number of Paraguayans is growing again and one more may even be added (Omar Alderete), something necessary for the growth of the level of Paraguayan soccer.
