Napoli striker Higuain delighted to prove Coppa matchwinner

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain was delighted to prove the matchwinner in their Coppa Italia win over Lazio.

Higuain struck the only goal of the game.

"It was an important game, we're in the Coppa semi-final and this is an important title for us. Thanks to the efforts of the whole team, we are in the semi-final," he told Rai Sport.

"I am truly happy here. The team and the city are fantastic, I feel the love every day and I'll be honest, I am happy here.

"The important thing was to win. Fortunately, we can go further in this competition."

Napoli will face Roma in the two-legged semi-final next month.

"We have to focus on Atalanta now and after that we can think about Roma. Over two legs will be difficult, the important thing will be to win."
