Julián Álvarez scores twice for Manchester City vs. Fluminense and wins Club World Cup


Julián Álvarez scored twice for Manchester City in the 4-0 win vs. Fluminense and achieved the FIFA Club World Cup.

Álvarez would open the score in the first minute of play by hitting the ball with his chest after a rebound off one of the posts. This goal was very similar to the one Lionel Messi scored when he chested a goal in a Club World Cup final against Estudiantes de la Plata in 2009.

The 23-year-old Argentine would convert the 4-0 for the “Cityzens” in minute 87 with a cross kick with his right foot inside the box.

He was also named the Man of the Match for the final. With this title, he reached his 14th trophy in his career and became the third player in history to win a Copa Libertadores, Copa America, World Cup, Champions League and Club World Cup.
