Sun, 06 Jul 2014 00:33:00 +0000

Ian MacNicol/Getty Images(BRASILIA, Brazil) -- For the first time since 1990, Argentina is heading to the World Cup semifinal after beating Belgium 1-0 Saturday.

Gonzalo Higuain scored in the eighth minute when the ball deflected off a Belgian defender and into his feet. Higuain took advantage of the opportunity and knocked it past Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois right side. The goal breaks Higuain's four-game scoreless drought.

"Since the first game of this World Cup I said I was calm, that the goals would come. It came and at an important moment," Higuain said. "It's been so many years since we made it to the semifinals. Now we did."

Where they'll meet the Netherlands on Wednesday. The match scheduled to start at 4:00 p.m Eastern. You can watch that on ESPN.
