Higuita is known for his eccentric playing style, taking unnecessary risks and actively trying to score goals.
He is also prone to blunders, and it was a mistake by him that knocked Colombia out of the 1990 World Cup, when he seemingly dithered with the ball at his feet 35 yards from goal enabling Cameroon striker Roger Milla to dispossess him and score, putting Cameroon through to the quarter-finals.
As a result of such behaviour, Higuita was nicknamed “El Loco” by media and fans alike.
So, just how crazy is Higuita? And is this type of play acceptable in the modern day football? Check out the following video:-
