Julian Alvarez Goal Provides Argentina 2-0 Lead In World Cup Semi-Final

Argentina has a 2-0 lead over Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals thanks to the fantastic individual Julian Alvarez goal.

Lionel Messi scored from the penalty spot in the 34th minute after Alvarez was brought down in the box. And the striker doubled the lead five minutes later.

The 22-year-old carried the ball from inside his own half and, despite a deflection off a defender in the box, finished well, helped by a brilliant decoy run from right-back Nahuel Molina.
