outlaw Have you ever play for a team before? That wasn't accidental man, its something you practice in training..Goals like that don't come off all the time, I agree with that sentiment but by no means that was a ''lucky'' or ''accidental'' goal..look how many times Ronaldo have tried to score a bicycle kick goal and fail at it all the time..

Its the same as if a player pass you the ball in the outfield and you flick it on to another team mate without looking at him directly.

What about that goal. I don't know but it seems to me like accidentaly-instinctive.

I have only seen one poster degrade Pipita as not good enough for the NT (and that poster is wrong).

Most here have simply stated that he isn't as good at his position as Messi/Aguero are at theirs. I am one of those people who share this opinion. Given that Messi is the best player in the world, and even of his generation, and that Aguero is no slouch, that is hardly an insult. It's like someone getting offended that they aren't as good as Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant in their primes at the 2 guard position, and they are "only" 3rd best all time.

I, and many others, have always stated how important he is to the team as his height keeps the opposing defenses honest.

He warrants being on the team and being a starter, and because of the fact that we have no tall solid 9 as backup, he is one of the most critical pieces to our chances in Brazil.

I think 99% of the posters here would agree with this. What most won't agree with is hyperbole suggesting he is the best 9 today or better than Batistuta. That doesn't mean people don't value him. We have no other developed option for this position, and it appears we will go to the Cup without a backup for his position. He will be key for our attack, and he will likely score a lot of goals with the Fab 4, as they will create a lot of space for him given how defenders will not be able to focus on him.

Real Madrid certainly did themselves an injustice by getting rid of him, and it was all due to Ronaldo wanting to score more at his expense and Zidane pushing Benzema down Madrid's throats due to their French-Algerian connection. I am glad he left because they were treating him poorly. He is a great player and is a top 10 #9 in the world today. He is perfect to line up with Messi and Aguero.

There is a difference between being a true fan of the national team and those who wear the colors and being a fanBOY - even moreso when they express their sentiments without logical arguments, but with juvenile statements.Let's not try to create controversy when there isn't any (other than the 1 person who seems to think Higuain is not fit to start for the NT - if they have a better tall forward option that is eligible to wear the shirt, let's hear it...).

WooHoo0!!! Anybody who don't really like Hig and thinks he is no better than Falcao or whoever names you mentioned in previous post before need to SHUT THE HELL UP!!
Higuain is simply one of the best of this generation. He gets better and better.
What matters most to me at the moment is Hig keeps scoring, just like both Messi and Kun, we need all of 'em sharp this June.

Congrats on a great goal from Pipita!!! There’s no player in our NT like him and very few that can compete for his position (#9) You just cannot compare him to Palacio or Tevez . Ex. compare him to Icardi. Gonzalo Higuain is indeed a world class striker and makes goals out of nothing. Some consider this luck but his position is superb. A true Fox in the Box and when given a proper midfield, Pipita will lose himself in the game and always appear to make “Lucky” goals and superb strikes!!! CHEERS PIPITA!! You are irreplaceable in our NT and the best thing that Madrid lost! Do your research on Pipita’s Career and stats before you degrade this monster!!!

Am from the small Caribbean island of Grenada and I have been following Argentina football from since I was a little boy until now and I only hope that Sabella makes the right choice as it relates to the G.K position in addition other persons on my Island who supports Argentina as well would even like to see Tevez in the squad.

Higuain with Aguero and Messi will be difficult to deal with for any team. Throw in DiMaria, and the attack is potentially the best that anyone has seen in my lifetime at a World Cup.

Need a keeper, desperately. I hope Sabella isn't the typical Argentinean who lets pride get in the way of the right decision......

His position on almost all his goals is perfect. Reminds me of Martin Palermo in that aspect but Higuain is far more complete. I bring Palermo because he had a knack for being at the right place at the right time.

that is what being a striker is about-doing the unexpected.
9 times out of 10 it would not go in but when it does-awesome.

Higuain need to stop throwing his hand at the refs when a call go against him..Cant afford the slightest mistakes to cost us at the world cup.

outlaw now tell me how was that a ''lucky'' goal? you guys never seems to amaze me..Higuain actually position himself to make that goal come off the way it did...This was more difficult than the one Palacio scored against AC Milan.

I have score a few goals like this but more in the futsol version and trust me, you have to practice these back heel goals on the training ground to have them come off in a split second.

lovely goal from "he goal in"(HIGUAIN)

Posted on 1/31/2014 at 11:29 AM
Amazing. Actually I feel it is in one way good that Napoli do not have to contest the Champions League this year. We need a fresh and hungry Higuain in Brazil.

I want to see more goals like this in June - July.
    On this day in 2006, Lionel MESSI scored his first ever goal for the Argentina National Team. MESSI scored his first goal for Argentina on March 1, 2006 in a friendly match against Croatia. A match which ended 3-2 in Croatia's favor. 
    The media in Argentina has been reporting that the AFA has not paid Tata MARTINO or his coaching staff since October. 
    On this day in 2012, Lionel Messi scored his first ever hattrick for the Argentina National Team vs. Switzerland. February 29, 2012 marked the day Lionel MESSI scored his first hattrick for the National Team in a 3-1 win against Switzerland.
