World Cup 2010, Argentina Vs. South Korea: Gonzalo Higuain Goal Gives Albiceleste Commanding Lead

Set piece work from Lionel Messi and Maxi Rodriguez led to a Nicolas Burdisso flick far post for Gonzalo Higuain, whose 33rd minute header put Argentina up 2-0 over South Korea.

The movement started on the left flank, where building from a set piece saw Messi and Rodriguez against one defender 8 yards from touch.  Messi eventually played the ball to Maxi whose cross found Burdisso just inside the area.  The defender, substituted on ten minutes prior,  flicked the ball on for Higuain, left open as South Korea tried to push its line up.  Higuain headed the ball down toward the goal line, the shot bouncing up, into goal.

With goalkeeper Jung Song-Ryong slow to react, Argentina is pu 2-0 ten minutes before halftime.
