Julian Alvarez (22, Argentina) started scoring alongside Lionel Messi (35), whom he took a picture with 10 years ago, in the World Cup finals.

Argentina will play the ‘2022 International Football Federation (FIFA) World Cup Semifinals’ schedule with Croatia at Lusail Stadium located in Lusail, Qatar at 4:00 am (Korean time) on the 14th.

Alvarez was responsible for the attack as a two-top player with Messi. As the second half progresses, Argentina leads 2-0. Both goals were played by Alvarez.

In the 31st minute of the first half, in a counterattack situation, Alvarez dug into the back space and was fouled by the opposing goalkeeper, earning a PK. Messi, who started as a kicker, scored the opening goal.

Then Alvarez shook the net directly. In the 38th minute of the first half, Álvarez tried to dribble from the half-line in an attack following an opponent’s corner kick, maintaining his concentration on the ball in front of the goal and scoring the team’s second goal. He has been involved in all scoring so far.

For Alvarez, it is a more emotional moment than ever. Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European football transfer market, said on social network service (SNS), “A boy who dreamed of a World Cup sometime 10 years ago took a picture with Messi as an avid fan. Tonight he scored in the World Cup semi-final.”

Álvarez scored side by side in the semi-final with Messi, whom he pictured together 10 years ago. Moreover, the two players exchanged each other. At the time of the opening goal, Messi scored with Alvarez’s PK guidance, and for the additional goal, Messi stretched out his foot to the end and gave a pass to Alvarez.
