One of the foremost playmakers in MLS during his prime, Higuian caught the league by storm in 2012 when he scored five goals and assisted on seven others in just 13 games. Higuain is a classic No. 10 who joins Inter Miami after a stellar career with Columbus and brief D.C. United stint. Higuain plays between the lines of the defense, picking up balls and spraying them across the field.
OUTSIDE MLS: A product of the River Plate academy, Higuain failed to catch on with his hometown club. He ended up moving to Nueva Chicago, where he scored 29 goals before moving around to Besiktas in Turkey and Club America in Mexico. He played for three more Argentinian clubs before moving to Columbus.
NOTES: Voted 2012 Newcomer of the Year ... Brother, Gonzalo, also plays for Inter Miami.
