An image for every fan of River and the Argentine national team. Two sons of the house, world champions on December 18 in Qatar and met again in a very special moment. Giuliano Alvarez took the field with him Manchester City AND Enzo Fernández He made the corridor with his companions. As they passed there was a smiling look between them.
During the game everyone did their thing. Julián, the 1-0 goal for champions City. Enzo, regular game in a Chelsea that hasn’t lifted its head with Lampard and is waiting for Mauricio Pochettino. After the 1-0 at the Etihad, a great match between old teammates from River, champions with Gallardo. Enzo is 22 years old and left for Benfica in the middle of last year. But a few months later he went to Chelsea for 121 million dollars. Julián is 23 and also went to the Premier League last year and has already scored 17 goals in 47 games.
They saw each other talking as friends and in confidence after the victory where Guardiola’s team celebrated the Scudetto. But what attracted the most attention was the greeting between the cracks, which shook hands in a ritual that accompanies them in every meeting.
The meeting took place immediately after the game, with a curiosity: Enzo with his cell phone inside his shorts. Julián, with 19, before returning to the field to celebrate with the whole team. Curiously, Julián did not give him the City shirt, while he took the Chelsea one.
Thus another unforgettable day passed for Julián, world champion, Premier, Champions League finalist. And with a corridor from a friend of River’s who was a record pass to Chelsea and with whom he ended up talking in the corridors of the Etihad.
