Manchester City’s Julian Alvarez and his Argentina team-mates have claimed the World Cup for the first time since 1986 with a dramatic penalty shootout triumph over France.

It has been a memorable tournament for the City striker and his South American colleagues.

After succumbing to a shock 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia in their opening group match, Argentina and Alvarez have subsequently gone from strength to strength in the ensuing four weeks.

And that culminated in a dramatic 4-2 penalty shootout triumph, having drawn a breathtaking World Cup final 3-3 with France.


Here we look back at some of the best images of Alvarez’s World Cup journey, from matchday one to the final!
