The answer is not only surprising, but it is very logical due to the player's youth and how he has carried out his process in this Argentine national team, led by Lionel Scaloni.

How many goals has Julian Alvarez scored with Argentina?

Julián Álvarez has scored 1 goal with the Argentina national team, that is to say, the goal he scored this afternoon against Ecuador was his first goal with the Albiceleste, and this was also his first game as a starter. 

The player scored his first goal with his national team in the 24th minute of the match, thus conditioning the Ecuadorians and giving the advantage to Argentina, a team that has already qualified for the World Cup, as the second-best team in Conmebol.

The player nicknamed the "Araña (Spider)" had a dream debut today with the team coached by Lionel Scaloni, as he not only opened the scoring, but his goal was thanks to a pass from Messi.

In a brilliant team play, Álvarez made a one-two with Lionel Messi, who returned the ball to the "Araña", who tried to shoot at the opponent's goal.

However, his shot was saved by an Ecuadorian defender, but as the ball bounced and remained in Alvarez's legs, the Argentine tried again and this time his shot went into the goal. 

With his goal in the 24th minute, the Argentinean team could have control of the match, but the Ecuadorians did not give up and put up a tough fight, which culminated in added time, when Enner Valencia scored for Ecuador.

With his goal, the match ended 1-1, with which the teams shared the points and left satisfied, since both teams are in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar 2022, and together with Brazil and Uruguay, will represent Conmebol.

How long will Julián Álvarez remain at River Plate?

According to the information that came out following the purchase of the player by Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, Álvarez will remain until July 2022

But apparently, there is a possibility that the player will remain with Los Millonarios for longer, as long as the club managed by Marcelo Gallardo continues in the Copa Conmebol Libertadores

That is, if the club is eliminated in the group stage, the player will leave to report to City in the Premier League, but if River remains in the competition, Alvarez will stay in Argentina until December 30. 

The latter was confirmed by Fernando Hidalgo, the player's agent. However, if Manchester City wanted him earlier, they could execute a clause that would allow them to interrupt the loan on July 6 in exchange for a sum of money that was not informed.

However, according to unofficial information, the amount that Guardiola's club would have to pay would be 1.5 million euros.
