The Napoli forward insists that that Alejandro Sabella's men are just as worthy participants in the World Cup final as Brazil's conquerors, despite being underdogs
The Albiceleste may have Lionel Messi within their ranks but they are the underdogs ahead of their encounter at the Maracana, primarily because of the way in which their opponents thrashed hosts Brazil 7-1 in a sensationally one-sided semi-final in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday.
Higuain, though, is not in the least bit daunted by the challenge facing Germany, arguing that Argentina are just as worthy participants in the biggest match in football.

"We will go there and we will win. People didn't expect to see us there yet, however, we are there and we can accomplish this dream of lifting the World Cup.
"And it is a dream, an opportunity, a privilege. I spoke with a team-mate who told me that to play a World Cup final was something incomparable, inexplicable - and even more so if you win!"
While the locals in attendance are expected to get behind Germany, given Brazil's rivalry with Argentina, Higuain insists that Alejando Sabella's side will not want for support.
"We know that millions and millions of Argentines are behind us and that many will be present in Rio," the forward enthused.
"It has been 24 years that they have been dreaming of a World Cup final. Their support will be important for us."
