Watch: Gonzalo Higuain fails to score...in new Nike ad

New, comments

Alas, poor Napoli, we just never get a break, do we? Despite Gonzalo Higuaín being the best thing to come out of Argentina since the God of Football arrived in Naples in 1984, in Nike's World Cup commercial, Pipita doesn't get to score.

But even if Higuaín doesn't score, this commercial should get you all kinds of excited for the World Cup - because that's what these videos are meant to do, and damn, they're good at it.

Although including Zlatan Ibrahimovic was just cruel. Surely he should be allowed to be an honorary citizen of some poor country that doesn't have a chance of getting through the group stages.
