Julian Alvarez and the CHILDHOOD DREAM he fulfilled in his last match
The Argentine is thriving with Manchester City, and he just made one of his childhood dreams come true
Julián Álvarez is enjoying a great moment in his first months with Manchester City. The Argentine striker quickly adapted to European football and is already scoring important goals with the shirt of his new team.
He made his first appearance as a starter against Copenhagen in the Champions League and scored his first goal in the competition. The great night that the Araña had at the Etihad Stadium caused several users on social media to recall an old post published by the player, which demonstrates his love for the Champions League.
Dreams are made to be fulfilled and Julián Álvarez is achieving it. When he was taking his first steps in the youth ranks of River Plate, the Araña uploaded a photo from his classroom, while watching a Bayern Munich match in the Champions League, a team that Pep Guardiola was then managing.
Now, the Spaniard is his coach and Álvarez is enjoying it. In the 76th minute of the match, he appeared in the six yards box and sent the ball to the back of the net, converting his first goal in the competition that he followed as a child on television, thousands of kilometers away, in Argentina.
After the match ended, Julian Álvarez's great performance did not go unnoticed by Guardiola, who for the umpteenth time praised his striker: "He played a fantastic game. We are all very happy for him and because he needed the goal too. But he is not just a scorer, he knows how to play very, very well".
