Alexis Mac Allister scored the opening goal for Argentina against Poland in its final Group C match of the FIFA World Cup at the Stadium 974 in Qatar on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old midfielder made a crucial run into the box and received Nahuel Molina’s cross, steering it into the net and giving the Albiceleste the breakthrough they were looking for.

Mac Allister plays in the Premier League for Brighton and Hove Albion and has been one of their lynchpins in the midfield as his team sits seventh in the league table at the moment.

Earlier in the match, Argentina came close to scoring in the 39th minute when it was awarded a penalty after a VAR check. Lionel Messi stepped up for it and saw his shot saved by goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Mac Allister had made his senior debut in 2019, but he had not been able to find the net so far and the opening goal against Poland was just the perfect way for him to start his tally for the Albiceleste.
