Nigeria vs Argentina: Aguero faints, fans attack Argentina coach


Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero was rushed to a local hospital in Krasnodar after he fainted in Argentina’s dressing room during half-time of Tuesday’s friendly with Nigeria, local media reported.

Aguero, who scored the winner in Argentina’s 1-0 victory over Russia on Saturday, netted his team’s second goal against Nigeria in the 36th minute in Krasnodar before he was replaced at the break.

Sport Express daily reported that Argentina’s team doctor took the decision to transport Aguero to hospital as a precaution and to undergo medical tests.

Nigeria battled back from two goals down to beat Argentina 4-2.

In another development,  Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli came under fierce attack  after La Albiceleste’s stunning  4-2 defeat by Nigeria in their friendly match in Krasnodar, Russia, on Tuesday.

The Super Eagles recovered from  2-0 down to beat the Lionel Messi-less South American powerhouse after they  ran riot  in the second half at the Krasnodar Stadium.

And Argentina fans, whose team had beaten Nigeria four times in a competitive affair  and once in a friendly encounter, had expected a whitewash.

But goals from Kelechi Iheanacho, Brian Idowu and Alex Iwobi’s brace downplayed Ever Banega’s 28th-minute strike and Sergio Aguero’s 36th international goal on the night.

Sampaoli, who guided Chile to the 2015 Copa America title, was criticised by fans of the two-time world champions after his team squandered a comfortable 2-0 lead.

The majority of the former Sevilla manager’s critics on social media questioned  his tactical nous as they expressed their apprehension whether his team would perform at next year’s World Cup.
