A new interesting news from the Qatar World Cup, which is rich with many features and curiosities.
McCallister’s family history, who scored the first goal for Argentina against Poland, has been discussed on social media.

The star, who plays as a central midfielder for Argentina and Brighton, has a family full of footballers. McCallister’s father, Carlos McCallister, has worn the boots alongside Diego Maradona for Argentine club Boca Juniors and for his country.

Although he was not lucky enough to play in the World Cup for Argentina, Carlos McAllister managed to help Argentina qualify for the World Cup in the 1993 qualifiers for the 1994 World Cup, playing alongside legends like Maradona, Fernando Redondo, Oscar Ruggeri and Diego Simeone.

Carlos McCallister’s siblings were also professional football players. After retiring from professional football, he turned to political activity. In 2013, he became part of the Republican Proposal Party and served as Secretary of Sports in President Mauricio Macri’s government from 2015 to 2018.

After Carlos, his son Alexis McAllister will wear the boots alongside another Argentinian legend, Messi. A die-hard Messi fan, Alexis Messi wears the jersey number 10 and plays for the Argentina Under-23 team and Premier League club Brighton.

The player who wears the number 20 jersey for Argentina is considered as the future promise of Argentina. McCallister’s siblings are also professional players.

After completing the group stage of the Qatar World Cup, Group C champions Argentina with two wins and one draw will face Australia in the pre-quarters on Sunday.
