Aguero makes quick recovery


Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has recovered from a groin injury and is available for Argentina ahead of tonight's World Cup qualifier against Colombia.

The former Atletico Madrid forward missed his nation's 1-1 draw against Bolivia on Friday, with fears the 23-year-old could be out of action for club as well as country with the problem.

However, Aguero insists it wasn't as serious as first thought, and is raring to go tonight.

"I'm fully recovered and on my way to Colombia. I’m eager to give the best on the pitch for the team. The results of the scan were good and it looks like it was just muscle fatigue, though I didn’t want to chance it against Bolivia.”

Pablo Zabaletta is again expected to feature after playing 90 minutes in the last match.

Elsewhere, Gareth Barry will be hoping to start for England against Sweden after coming off the bench against Spain on Saturday, whilst Joleon Lescott is expected to be amongst the substitutes.

Edin Dzeko (Bosnia) and Stefan Savic (Montenegro) are in Euro 2012 play-off action, with both facing uphill challenges against Portugal and Czech Republic respectively.

Gael Clichy and Vincent Kompany go head-to-head when France take on Belgium in a friendly, whilst Holland make the trip to Germany.
