Aguero a doubt for Argentina

The 23-year-old missed City’s win over Aston Villa last month after

suffering a groin problem in the first half of the 4-0 win at

Blackburn and that injury has flared up again in training. The

Albiceleste face Bolivia later on Friday in Buenos Aires, with

Paris St Germain’s Javier Pastore standing by to take Aguero’s

place if the City man does not make it. Technical director

Alejandro Sabella told the Argentinian Football Association’s

official website, afa.org.ar: “Sergio Aguero has a sore groin and

is doubtful for the match against Bolivia. “In the event that

Aguero does not play, Javier Pastore may replace him. “The rest of

the team to play Bolivia is: Sergio Romero, Pablo Zabaleta, Nicolas

Burdisso, Martin Demichelis, Clemente Rodriguez, Fernando Gago,

Javier Mascherano, Ricardo Alvarez, Lionel Messi and Gonzalo

Higuain. We do not know whether Aguero will be able to play.” The

game against Colombia follows on Tuesday in Barranquilla.
