Lazio defender Wesley Hoedt called marking Napoli hitman Gonzalo Higuain “a formative experience.”
The Aquile were torn apart 5-0 at the Stadio San Paolo in their Serie A humiliation.
“I learned more from one match than the other six put together,” Hoedt told Dutch media while on international duty.
“Higuain is a great striker with so much experience and with him on the field anything can happen.
“I was criticised a lot after that game. You must learn quickly how to mark certain players. I recovered from it fairly well, as it was a formative experience for me.”
