Sergio Aguero Faints in Argentina vs Nigeria Match

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero faints inside Argentina changing room during half-time of defeat to Nigeria

Sergio Aguero has given Manchester City a scare after fainting during the half-time interval of Argentina’s friendly against Nigeria.

The 29-year-old scored in the 4-2 defeat at Krasnodar’s Stadium in Russia but failed to come out for the second half.

Aguero, who recovered from broken ribs to resume playing this month, was taken to hospital for checks after his collapse in the dressing room.

City, who play Leicester on Saturday, are awaiting medical reports before the striker returns home.

Aguero’s first-half strike had helped his side into a 2-0 lead, but that advantage disappeared.

Former City team-mate Kelechi Iheanacho had given the Super Eagles hope with a goal before the break, and it was another Premier League star, Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, that inspired a second-half comeback, as he grabbed two goals.
