Juventus hitman Gonzalo Higuain will probably never forget that moment in the FIFA World Cup 2014's final when he had the chance to lead Lionel Messi and Argentina to World Cup glory before missing the opportunity to score at that moment.
However, the striker has defended himself for not being able to score. Higuain dragged his shot wide, one-on-one against Manuel Neuer in the final, leading to him being labelled from thereon as a player who misses big chances in big games.
While speaking in his recent interview with Fox Sports, Higuain was made to revisit that moment from the World Cup final and he said, "It was an unexpected chance. I was there, but unfortunately I couldn't take it."

He continued, "I did the first thing that came to my mind, but I don't know if I'd do the same thing today. It came to me 15 metres out and as soon as I turned I had the goal in front of me. It looked easier than it was."
Higuain was also asked about his experience playing with Cristiano Ronaldo in the same team twice in his career. He replied as he concluded, "I played with him in Spain. Now, I've found another player, a more mature person with a family. I'm happy to play with him again."
