Gonzalo HIGUAÍN on the Argentina National Team:
“We always give everything for our country. Hopefully I could be the top goal scorer of the World Cup. I always want to help Argentina.”
Gonzalo HIGUAÍN on nearly quitting football:
“The critics don’t bother me. My mother’s the one that suffered the most. […] I was at the point of quitting football. My mother’s the one that gave me strength to continue playing.”
