Ahead of Germany clash, Higuaín says 'no intimidation'

Argentina''s forward Gonzalo Higuaín (L) is tackled by Netherlands'''' defender Stefan de Vrij (R) during the semi-final football match between Netherlands and Argentina.

Argentina are not intimidated by facing Germany in the World Cup final despite seeing them tear hosts Brazil to shreds in the semis, striker Gonzalo Higuaín has said.

"There's no intimidation, not at all. There is respect. They will also be worried that Argentina is in the final," Higuain told reporters after his side beat the Netherlands 4-2 in a penalty shootout to book a place in the final.

Germany thrashed Brazil 7-1 on Tuesday in one of the most shocking results in soccer history, but Higuaín said Argentina had no reason to fear anyone.

"We're in the final and the other stuff doesn't matter. Everyone who plays struggles and fights to the death."

Argentina beat the Netherlands 4-2 on penalties following a 0-0 draw after extra time in their semi-final on Wednesday.
