Argentina scored in the 8th minute, with Gonzalo Higuain smashing a right-footed volley into the left hand side of the goal in a highlight reel shot.  The goal was assisted by Angel Di Maria and was helped by a deflection from a defender on the pass.  Di Maria then left the game in the 33rd minute with a thigh injury.   Argentina had to hold the lead for 82+ minutes after taking the early lead, but were up to the task, allowing Belgium only 4 shots on goal for the game.
