Gonzalo Higuain scores beautiful touch-and-turn goal to give Argentina lead over Jamaica

New, comment

Argentina's last Copa America group match is off to a good start thanks to a certain Napoli striker.

Gonzalo Higuain hadn't played much or effectively for Argentina so far in the Copa America. Thanks to an injury to Kun Agüero, though, he got the start against Jamaica and quickly made an impact:

To make that turn and shot in a box that crowded is impressive, and it's a nice turnaround for Higuain, who's looked to be in rough form since late in the Napoli season. The goal puts Argentina up 1-0 over Jamaica, and as things stand they'd emerge the winners of Group B of the Copa America.
