Aguero's Father Reveals Argentina Striker Will Be Able To Play Against Nigeria

Aguero's father, Leonel del Castillo, has revealed that the Manchester City star is not in danger of missing out on the 2018 World Cup despite the striker undergoing knee meniscus surgery on Tuesday, April 17.

Apart from Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Aguero is widely regarded as La Albiceleste's most important player, with 36 goals in 84 appearances for the national team.

''It was all very fast. My wife sent a message to him in the morning. He is going to miss one month, the conditions are there to make him come in quite well,'' said Leonel del Castillo to Radio Continental. 

''It was all urgent, never had anything planned to be done. The doctors of the club had recommended him to the doctor who operated him. 

''It was a cleaning on the knee, I spoke with Sergio and he told me that everything went well.''

Based on the pronouncement of Leonel del Castillo, it means Aguero will miss the rest of the season but will be fit to take to the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg pitch when the Super Eagles face off against the South Americans at the World Cup on June 26.

Aguero's surgical operation in Barcelona was conducted by famous surgeon Dr Ramon Cugat, who also treated Nigeria striker Isaac Success in November 2016.
