THE HIGUITA WAY

Russia 2018

"I achieved something even Pele, Maradona and Messi haven't"

Former Colombia international Rene Higuita has never gone unnoticed. On the pitch he had his own unique style, taking a daring approach to goalkeeping and making an indelible mark on the position.

He is equally flamboyant and extroverted off it, though not averse to making his strongly held opinions known.

FIFA.com spoke to him about his style between the posts, his influence on today’s keepers and Colombia’s chances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.

THE INTERVIEW

Along came a Colombian and he more or less said to everyone: ‘This is Higuita’s Law. This is how keepers have to play.’ That’s what we did. We put the focus on the ball and being brave.”
