Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain on Wednesday dismissed criticism from fans after he missed a crucial penalty in his team's Champions League pre-quarter-final first leg at home against London fotball club Tottenham Hotspur, which ended in a 2-2 draw.
Higuain started out strong, putting two goals past Tottenham in the first nine minutes of the match on Tuesday. He later sent a penalty on to the crossbar and straight into the crowd, triggering a slew of fan criticism on social media, reports Efe.
"It's easy to talk after the match from your couch at home," he wrote on his official Instagram account, adding: "Until 2-0 everything was perfect, after 2-2 opinions changed. We are not interested in them and we're going to London to qualify."
