Federico Higuain has continued his brilliant start to life with Columbus Crew.
The Argentine attacker netted two goals in the 4-3 home victory over New England Revolution on the weekend, taking his tally to three goals from three outings, thrilling head coach Robert Warzycha with the manner of his sublime brace.
Higuain bent his 25-yard free-kick into the top right corner in the 26th minute to cut the deficit to 2-1 to the Revs after they scored the opening two goals before his 43rd minute dead ball also found the back of the net which made it 3-2.
Warzycha was over the moon for his Designated Player signing, wondering how he was able to score two expert free-kicks so early in his Crew career.
“Those ridiculous free kicks, I told the guys in the locker room, 'I practice [free kicks] almost every day. You can see me doing free kicks with Justin Meram and Emilio [Renteria],’” Warzycha said.
“’Federico, he's just sitting on the side not doing free kicks with us. Look at today, he went over there and scores two.' I'm like, 'Where the heck did that guy come from?' It's amazing to have talent like this.”
