Alexis Mac Allister

was one of the figures of the

World Cup in Qatar

, where the

achieved the third title in its history.

On their return to England,

Brighton & Home Albion 

paid tribute to their champion.

But the reception of the fans was missing, which this Saturday brought out all the cotillion to greet their world champion.

Mac Allister appeared applauding, in clear response to the affection of the fans, who, in addition to giving him an ovation, hung two pieces of cloth from the stands:

an Argentine flag that said "our champion" and another of a giant albiceleste shirt with MacAllister's number on the Selection


There were also small Argentine flags in different sectors of the stalls.

It is not the first sign of affection received by the player who emerged from Argentinos Juniors after being champion in Doha.

This week a video emerged at the exit of a practice, where the midfielder met a group of Brighton child supporters at the door of the training center.

Alexis not only stopped the truck and lowered her glass, but also took some time to search in a bag and searched for a more than precious object.

The talented midfielder took out the gold medal that he received as one of the 26 world champions of Qatar 2023.

The boys, who couldn't believe it, approached the player's vehicle, which leaned out the window, and took a picture with their idol and with the exclusive medal of the world champion.

On January 2, when he arrived at the club after the break in Argentina, the midfielder had been received as a hero by his teammates and employees of the institution, who gave him a standing ovation.

Mac Allister entered with the champion's medal on his chest, but the story didn't end there.

After an innumerable amount of hugs, a replica of the World Cup that rested on an Argentine flag awaited the former Argentinians and Boca.

It was then that the Argentine dressed up as captain Lionel Messi and raised the trophy that everyone wants to raise and a shower of yellow, light blue and white confetti exploded to complete a memorable scene.

That replica reappeared this Saturday in the stadium, so that Mac Allister could celebrate this time with the fans who never tire of expressing their love for him.
