When a player scores 36 league goals in a season, you know they are in good form.

Away from the hysteria of Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in Spain, Gonzalo Higuain had an exceptional season in Serie A. He scored a hat-trick on the final day of the season to match Gino Rosetti's record from 1929 with the most league goals in an Italian season.

The Napoli striker continued his exceptional club form into the game with Honduras, with a goal that would make Dennis Bergkamp proud. The 28-year-old scored the game's only goal in the 1-0 win over the Central American side.

Argentina are continuing preparations for the Copa America Centenario in America next month. Higuain is among the squad that also includes Messi, Angel di Maria and Sergio Aguero.

With goals like the one scored in San Juan, it's easy to see how Higuain has had such a memorable season.

In case you had forgotten it, here is that Dennis Bergkamp goal from 2002. No matter how many times you watch the goal, it's still amazing.
