On getting to the dressing room, the Manchester City striker collapsed and was rushed to the hospital.

He has regained consciousness and underwent some test.

The 29-year-old's 35th-minute goal made him Argentina’s third-highest scorer. He was replaced by Dario Benedetto.

Kelechi Iheanacho pulled a goal back for Nigeria from a freekick late in the first half before Alex Iwobi’s brace and a goal from debutant Bryan Idowu sealed a brilliant come-back for Super Eagles.

Aguero who has eight goals in eight Premier League appearances for City so far this season recently recovered from some rib injuries which he sustained in a late September car crash in Amsterdam while returning from a concert.
