Gonzalo Higuain’s stunning volley golazo was enough for Argentina to beat Belgium 1-0 in Brasilia and to seal the semi-final place.
It wasnt a game with a lot of chances as many expected, and the Red Devils disappointed. Argentina scored an early goal in the 8th minute of the game. The Napoli striker with a first touch volley from the edge of the box has scored a superb goal for the South American side. Before the end of the half time, Higuain had another good chance, but he struck the crossbar.
Belgium tried with a few changes in the second half to find the equalizer, but unsuccessfully. The most of their attacks were with a long ball searching for Lukaku or Fellaini, which wasnt enough to find a gap in Argentina’s defence. In a not so great game, Messi in the 94th minute had a chance to raise the lead to 2-0 but Courtois defends his shot, and that was it. Argentina reached the semi-finals where they will play with Netherlands or Costa Rica.
