  • With the top online bookmakers covering Messi at short odds, it could pay to back Gonzalo Higuain to be Top Goalscorer for Argentina at the World Cup.

    Lionel Messi has scored 37 goals from his 83 International appearances so far and is the leading contender to top score for Argentina in the World Cup, However, Some firms are as short as even money about the four-time Ballon D'Or winner bagging the most goals for his country in Brazil and the current top price of 11/8 with bet365 is short enough to warrant looking elsewhere.

    Ezequiel Lavezzi is a great player in his own right, but is too far down the pecking order to be of interest for this particular bet, meaning the players to focus on as an alternative to Messi are Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain.

    Aguero's early season form for Manchester City was phenomenal and he still managed to end the campaign with 17 goals despite suffering a number of injury setbacks. But it's those niggling injuries which remain a concern and another setback during the finals would see his chances of topping Argentina's goal charts diminish.

    Gonzalo Higuain also managed 17 goals this season for Napoli, albeit from eight extra appearances, but it's his performances for Argentina in 2014 friendlies and during qualification for the World Cup which catch the eye. During that period Higuain scored only 1 less goal for his country than Messi, none of which were penalties compared to Messi's 4. Yes Messi will retain those spot kick duties at the World Cup, but at odds of 7/2 with Bet365, Coral and Betway, Higuain looks nicely priced in the Argentina Top Goalscorer market.
