FIFA World Cup 2010 - Gonsalo Higuine scores Hatrick

Updated on June 17, 2010

Well done Higuain

Gonazalo Higuain Scores the first Hatrick of FIFA World Cup 2010.

Argentinean coach Diego Maradona was in his full moon smile when the match between South Korea and Argentina was won by the latter by 4-1. The highlight of the match was striker Gonazalo Higuain ’s Hatrick. It was the first hatrick of FIFA World Cup 2010. The super star and playmaker Lionel Messi was the legend behind all the goals scored by Higuain. The goals from Higuain was at 33rd , 76th and 79th minutes of the game. Earlier the first goal for Argentina was a self goal by the Korean defender.

It was Lionel Messi the hero of this match. The second goal of Higuain which was the third of Argentina was from a beautiful movement started by Messi just outside the penalty box of Korea. He shoot the ball to post and the Korean goalkeeper prevented it. The rebounded ball was again placed by Messi but it hit the post and diverted to the right post where Higuain was waiting. He just have to do the finishing touch.

The third goal also proved the class of Messi. Again he dribbled some defenders easily and entered the Korean box. At this time he passed the ball to Sergi Aguero who came overlapped in left wing. Aguero passed the ball to Higuain in the penalty box. Once again Higuain placed it very coolly to second post , hammering the last nail on Korea’s coffin. This was the first hattrick of Higuain for his country , Argentina.
