Sergio Aguero was taken to hospital after fainting at half-time of Argentina’s friendly defeat to Nigeria in Russia on Tuesday, but he has been cleared to return to Manchester City.
Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli said the Manchester City striker “got dizzy” during the break after his tap-in doubled La Albiceleste’s lead.
The Argentine Football Association wrote on Twitter that Aguero “presented symptoms of fainting and for that reason he was taken to have routine studies done as a precautionary measure.”
He was released from hospital and back with the team in the hotel about two hours after the final whistle, and City said he would return to England as planned.
The Premier League club announced on their website: “Sergio Aguero has been cleared by doctors to return to Manchester as planned after suffering a dizzy spell during Argentina’s 4-2 defeat by Nigeria in Krasnodar today.”
