Aguero re­cov­ers in hos­pi­tal af­ter dizzy spell

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

Ser­gio Aguero was taken to hos­pi­tal last night af­ter suf­fer­ing a dizzy spell in Ar­gentina’s 4-2 friendly de­feat by Nige­ria in Rus­sia.

Ini­tial re­ports said the Manch­ester City striker had blacked out in the Ar­gentina dress­ing room, shortly af­ter scor­ing late in the first half. How­ever, City in­sisted he had merely suf­fered dizzi­ness and they ex­pect him to be fit for club duty this week­end.

“Ser­gio Aguero has been cleared by doc­tors to re­turn to Manch­ester as planned af­ter suf­fer­ing a dizzy spell,” said a club state­ment. “Ser­gio never lost con­scious­ness, and was taken to hos­pi­tal for pre­cau­tion­ary med­i­cal checks. He will be as­sessed by the club’s med­i­cal team ahead of this week­end’s Pre­mier League trip to Le­ices­ter City.”

Aguero re­joined the Ar­gentina squad at their ho­tel but the fact that he was taken ill will cause con­cern, with the for­ward only re­cently hav­ing re­turned to ac­tion hav­ing bro­ken ribs in a car crash in Am­s­ter­dam in Septem­ber.

Mean­while, Wales con­ceded a goal in the third minute of in­jury time to draw 1-1 with Panama in their friendly in Cardiff, which could be man­ager Chris Cole­man’s last match in charge.

Tom Lawrence looked as if he had won the game with a solo strike be­fore Ar­mando Cooper lev­elled in stop­page time.

Sam Vokes had a penalty saved in the first half af­ter Luis Ovalle had brought down David Ed­wards in the box.

Cole­man said he would have talks over his fu­ture in the next few days with the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion of Wales af­ter the coun­try’s fail­ure to make the World Cup fi­nals.

Ger­many and France drew 2-2 in their friendly in Cologne. Arse­nal’s Alexan­dre La­cazette had twice put the French ahead only for Timo Werner and then Lars Stindl to equalise.
