Gonzalo Higuain gives Argentina 3-0 lead

Just in case the United States had any hope of staging an improbable comeback, Gonzalo Higuain all but completely put that to rest when he scored less than five minutes into the second half.

Higuain perfectly timed his run to get behind John Brooks and Ezequiel Lavezzi put in a perfect pass. Brad Guzan did well enough to stop the first shot, but there's nothing he could really do once Higuain got to the rebound. It's been that kind of night.
