Argentina forward Sergio Aguero collapsed during the half time of the grade one friendly game against Nigeria and was rushed to the medical center.
Aguero who netted La Albiceleste’s second goal in the first half lost consciousness in the middle of the match.
Aguero became Argentina’s third-highest scorer in history when he netted in the first half to put the Albiceleste 2-0 ahead.
At the break, however, the Manchester City man suffered a yet unknown problem and was forced to leave the Stadion FK in Krasnodar and seek medical treatment.
TyC Sports later reported that the forward later recovered consciousness and underwent tests in hospital, while Dario Benedetto replaced him on the field.
Argentina explained on their official twitter handle, “Aguero suffered a collapse and was therefore taken to carry out routine studies merely as a precaution.”
Argentina fell to a 4-2 defeat, with three of Nigeria’s goals coming after half time.
