This was Guardiola’s first pre-season match while Club America are three games into their Liga MX mission and it displayed as the Mexican side were coordinated and exuberant from the get-go.
Haaland might have been standing ready yet individual new striker Julian Alvarez, the Argentine global endorsed from River Plate, was making his initial beginning for City.
