Good! I don't think "attacker" is the word you want to use here.

Why not?He's not just a midfielder and he's not really a striker. I thought "attacker" was the best choice.

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™: Argentina-Belgium
Gonzalo Eseiza's insight:

Argentina celebrates a tight victory against Belgium and is back to semifinals for the first time since 1990. Gonzalo Higuain silenced his unfair critics with a decisive volley in the eighth minute. The first half was really thrilling. The Belgians had a lot of attempts on goal but were unable to convert because of Argetina's tough defense. Real Madrid's midfielder Angel Di Maria will lose the rest of the World Cup because of an injury. They will now face Netherlands in Sao Paulo on Wednesday.

Gonzalo Eseiza's insight:

World Cup hosts Brazil ensured a comfortable victory against Panama by 4-0,goals from Neymar, Daniel Alves, Hulk and Willian. Now they will play one more friendly on Friday against Serbia before World Cup starts. Even with this result, Brazil's coach Luiz Felipe Scolari saw room for improvement. Barcelona's striker Neymar had a great game scoring one goal and making two. We expect for him to play more games like this.
