Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella insists that striker Gonzalo Higuain is doing a great job for the team, even though he hasn't scored a single goal at the World Cup.
In the last match against Switzerland, he had just one clear scoring chance, a header that the goalkeeper saved with his fingertips.
Still, Sabella said Higuain's form is improving and that "we all have a lot of confidence in him because he is a great player who is doing a great job for the team. What's missing is the goal-scoring."
Lionel Messi is the only Argentina forward to score in Brazil.
