Video: Gonzalo Higuain pulls off outrageous first-touch for Inter Miami against Toronto FC

Posted by

Gonzalo Higuain proved class is permanent with an outstanding touch for Inter Miami during a 2-1 defeat to Toronto FC.

Inter Miami, founded by English football legend David Beckham, sit 12th out of 14 in the MLS table this term, despite having former Juventus duo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi within their ranks.

Higuain, who featured for Juve under Maurizio Sarri last term, was unable to make the difference as his side were defeated by Toronto earlier today, but the Argentine did produce a moment to remember.

The 32-year-old pulled off an outrageous touch, and barely broke a sweat doing so. He allowed the ball to float down onto his foot and stopped it dead.

It’s the mark of a top player, producing moments of brilliance and making them look simple. In the swansong of his career he may be, few would deny that Higuain is one of the best strikers of his generation.

Even if he did cost Lionel Messi his only shot at winning a World Cup…

  1. Higuain has played every minute of nine games for Miami without an open field goal. He is the highest paid player in MLS at 8 million dollars plus. The game he sat out recently was the only one Miami has won in the last four and you are focusing on a touch he happened to get right? The guy in his last game lost the ball countless times. Is that class? No. He’s washed up as a player, but I have to hand it to him he’s a shrewd businessman that knew how to peddle his name to a naive and desperate club with too much money for their own good.
