Gonzalo Higuain said that he knew that he would find his goalscoring form again after his match-winning strike on Saturday against Belgium, and pay per head sportsbooks never doubted the player’s ability.
Price per head services saw that Higuain was not able to score in Argentina’s first four matches at the FIFA World Cup, but the player was on target with a very nice finish in the eighth minute of his side’s quarter-final clash at Estadio Nacional on Saturday.
The Napoli striker’s early goal was decisive as Alejandro Sabella’s players were able to secure a 1-0 win and set up a semi-final showdown on Wednesday against the Netherlands in Sao Paulo, in a match that pay per head sportsbooks all over the world can’t wait to see.
And pay per head sportsbooks found out that Higuain, who also hit the crossbar in the second half, never had a doubt in his mind on his ability to score on the world’s biggest stage, in Argentina’s bid to become world champions for the first time since 1986.
“I wasn’t getting desperate about scoring because I knew I was going to get a goal sooner or later,” said Higuain.
“Obviously I’m very happy, especially with this being such a historically important win for Argentina.
“They’ve been asking me since day one when the goal was going to come and I’ve always given them the same answer:
‘I’m working on it’.”
There were worries that the 26-year-old – a favourite with pay per head sportsbooks for his talent on the pitch – would be ruled out of the tournament after he suffered an ankle injury while playing for Napoli, so the former frontman for Real Madrid is relishing the chance to play his part in the World Cup.
