Agbonlahor puts out Fire

Published Add your comment

Gabriel Agbonlahor scored the winner for Aston Villa in their pre-season friendly against the Chicago Fire on Saturday night before being forced off with an ankle injury.

The 25-year-old forward headed home Chris Herd's cross in the 29th minute to secure the Barclays Premier League club a second straight 1-0 success on their United States tour.

He departed in the second half after taking a knock, but Villa swiftly allayed concerns over the severity of the problem by posting on Twitter: "Gabby Agbonlahor injury not as bad as first feared. Out for two weeks."
