After 25 years of obscurity, Napoli once again has an Argentine leading them to the top of Serie A. This time, it’s striker Gonzalo Higuain. 25 years ago, it was the legendary Diego Maradona.
In fact the great Maradonna had even named Higuain his “heir” before the last international break, and the 27-year-old seems to be in the form of his life at Naples.
Higuain proved his class once again by scoring an outrageous volley on the second minute of the top-of-the-table clash against Inter Milan, who did not know what hit them. In fact, Higuain’s goal came from the very first attack of the match, in the 64th second.
The Argentine latched on to a ball from Lorenzo Insigne, but it was bobbing all over the place. However, the striker dispatched the ball into the roof of Samir Handanovic’s net with great disdain, sending the Napoli faithful into frenzy.
What was even more amazing about the goal was that the ball was slightly behind Higuain’s body. However, nothing seems impossible for the Argentine right now.
