A big happy birthday to the World Cup winner with Argentina, Alexis Mac Allister!
The man who provided an assist in the World Cup final turns 24 years old today. An absolute gem of a midfielder, Mac Allsiter found himself in the starting eleven due to injuries in the Argentina midfield but once in the eleven, he never lost his spot.
He was Argentina’s best player in the first half vs. Mexico and scored the opening goal of the match in the 2-0 win vs. Poland. In the knockout stages, he was instrumental in shielding the ball, moving it forward and connecting with the attack.
Alexis Mac Allister was unplayable in the World Cup final. The intelligence, the technique. And this clip doesn’t even show his assist! Incredible talent. Happy birthday once more!pic.twitter.com/J1DSFSCw3Y
