Sergio Agüero scared all of us when he went down with an injury during Argentina's training session on Sunday, but apparently all is good with the Manchester City star now.

Reports coming out of Argentina said the striker suffered a calf problem on Sunday's session ahead of Tuesday's World Cup Qualifying match against Paraguay, and there was genuine concern that Agüero would miss significant time. But a day later he was back in full training, without any pain or setbacks, and made himself available to play if coach Edgardo Bauza wants him to:

"I’m quite well now, you get physical fitness playing, not training. Bauza has the decision - I’ll be available for Tuesday. I’m much better. After the Peru game I had two days to make the recovery and I did a little bit of football today. I’m quite well."


There is a very big possibility Agüero is risking an injury to play for his country, which has happened before. Hopefully he isn't really injured and Pep Guardiola can use him in a very tough run of fixtures for the Citizens, including Premier League matches against Everton and Southampton and two Champions League games against Barcelona, as well as the EFL Cup Manchester Derby at Old Traford.

Please be careful, Kun. Please.
