Argentina have long been struggling for the perfect ‘number 9’ to compliment the great Lionel Messi, and along with Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero has often been criticised for his performances for La Albiceleste.
That was a different Aguero though, and the Pep Guardiola version put in an excellent performance for Jorge Sampaoli’s side today, scoring a deserved winner in the 86th minute of their friendly against Russia.
Has to be said, Sergio Aguero playing great. Fantastic on the ball and off the ball movement from the #MCFC player. Sharp shots and involved in the play up front. Possibly the best version of his since 2015 or even 2011. Maybe even ever with Argentina.

After Argentina had struggled to break down a resolute Russian side, Aguero saw a shot blocked and then headed in the rebound to give his country the win.
