Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has scored his first goal at a World Cup as Argentina took the lead against Iceland today.
The City hot-shot, so prolific in the Premier League, Champions League and other big club competitions down the years, hasn’t always done the business for his country.
This, however, is a superbly taken goal to show his class and give Argentina genuine hope that they won’t have to rely too much on serial bottler Gonzalo Higuain.

Hilariously, this came about thanks to what looked like a mis-hit shot by Marcos Rojo, with Manchester United fans semi-seriously tweeting that he deserves credit for the assist. We think not…
All I saw was a Rojo assist ?
