Higuain wildly celebrates disallowed goal in World Cup final

Monday, July 14, 2014 by UK.eurosport.yahoo.com

Gonzalo Higuain made amends for spurning a huge opening in the World Cup final by tucking home a first-half opener for Argentina at the Maracana.

He unleashed a triumphant roar as he wheeled away in delight, aggressively pointing at his shirt during a lengthy celebration.

There was just one problem.

His strike was ruled out for offside. Yes, despite being two yards offside, the striker failed to check for confirmation from the officials before starting his drawn-out lap of honour.

Higuain celebrates for a full twelve minutes before realizing that he was offside.

Oh well, at least he can tell the grandkids that he (briefly) experienced what it feels like to score in a World Cup final.
