Gonzalo Higuain scored a late winner to keep Inter Miami’s MLS Cup Playoffs hope alive, as the US club has been fighting for an opportunity at the playoffs.
After a long-time in Europe, the Argentine striker move to Inter Miami after winning both club and country titles with Real Madrid, Napoli and Argentina.
His lovely effort came in the 86th minute, when the game was at risk of ending in a draw, with the 34-year-old burying a low-driven shot past Quentin Westberg and into the bottom left corner.
Inter Miami has won three games in a row and Higuain has been on target for each of them, winning all three points for Phil Neville’s side.
In their previous outing, Inter Miami beat DC United 3-2, with the former Napoli and Real Madrid star’s match-deciding goal coming in at 90+4. In the game before that, Neville’s side overcame Columbus 2-1, with Higuain scoring in the 82nd minute to secure the victory.
Inter Miami now sits seventh in the Eastern Conference table and thus currently occupies the final playoffs slot.
Many fans and football experts have predicted that Gonzalo Higuain would be Inter Miami’s MVP, with the following stats:
12 goals in the last 14 games
4 straight matches getting on the scoresheet
A team-high 14 goals on the year
Columbus Crew, who are in eighth, are three points behind but boast a superior goal differential and are set to be in action this weekend, taking on the New York Red Bulls.
