Nigeria started the game with frayed nerves fell behind in the 27 minute after goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi's blunder handed the Argentines a free kick, which Ever Banega converted.

The Argentine Football Association wrote on Twitter that Aguero "presented symptoms of fainting and for that reason he was taken to have routine studies done as a precautionary measure".

Nigeria's Super Eagles have defeated Argentina 4-2 in today's friendly between both sides in Krasnodar, Russia.

Kelechi Iheanacho inspired the Nigeria fightback.
