BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) - Gonzalo Higuain's first goal of this World Cup sent Argentina into the semifinals on Saturday with a 1-0 win over a disappointing Belgium.

Argentina, which hadn't advanced past the World Cup quarterfinals since 1990, put in its best performance so far in the tournament, controlling the match after Higuain's eighth minute goal.

Higuain came close to making it 2-0 in the second half when his shot smashed into the crossbar.
