Sergio Aguero has undergone medical checks after reports he fell ill during Argentina’s 4-2 defeat by Nigeria in a friendly in Krasnodar.
The Manchester City forward apparently fainted at half-time before being taken to a local hospital. He was later released and rejoined the rest of the Argentinian squad.
Aguero started the game and scored in the 36th minute before being withdrawn at half-time during the game, which was played at Krasnodar Stadium in Russia.
The Argentine Football Association said on its Twitter account that the 29-year-old “had a blackout and was taken (to hospital) so routine examinations were made only as a precaution.”
