Argentina defeated the Netherlands 4-2 on penalties in the World Cup semi-final.
The match was a slow one, finishing 0-0 in regular time. Neither team created many chances and overall produced one of the least exciting matches in this tournament. In extra-time, Louis van Gaal subbed out Robin van Persie to bring on Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, a move that ended up hurting them in the penalty shootout. Jasper Cillessen did not save a single penalty and van Persie wasn't there to take one. Instead, Ron Vlaar missed the Netherlands' first penalty kick and the Europeans never recovered. Argentina will face Germany in the final on Sunday. Jul 9 - 7:10 PM

Argentina XI: Romero, Garay, Zabaleta, Biglia, Perez, Higuaín, Messi, Mascherano, Demichelis, Rojo, Lavezzi

There was some rumor in the past 24 hours that Aguero had returned to training and may take a part in this match, but if he does, it will be from off the bench as he does not crack the XI today. Martin Demichelis rightfully retains his spot at center back while Marcos Rojo returns from a suspension served in the quarterfinals.

Updating a previous item, Argentina spokesperson Andres Ventura has denied that Sergio Aguero has a torn hamstring.

Ventura clearly stated that the team do not have the results from Aguero's scan and the forward has not been ruled out of the remainder of the World Cup. He hasn't ruled out the possibility of a tear, instead he only stated that the team don't yet know the results of the injury. We will keep updating you on the situation as we find out more.

Sergio Aguero has reportedly been ruled out of the World Cup due to a torn hamstring.

The report is coming from Argentinian newspaper Clarin so there is nothing official as of now. If it is indeed true, this will be a huge blow for Argentina and for Manchester City. Aguero has had a number of muscle problems with Manchester City this season and it seems he can't stay healthy. He is one of the best strikers around when he can stay on the pitch, but his injury history has been a huge problem for his club and fantasy owners. Avoid Aguero until he shows he's healthy. Edin Dzeko will be a must own player if Aguero is set to miss extended time at the beginning of the season.

Sergio Aguero limped off during Argentina's exciting 3-2 win over Nigeria.

Both teams make it into the round of 16, Argentina finishing first and Nigeria coming in second. Sergio Aguero limped off the pitch with what looked like a minor injury and considering Argentina had already made the next round, the substitution might have been precautionary. The win can be hugely attributed to Lionel Messi. The magician scored two goals to lead Argentina in their win, the second coming from a fantastic free kick. Argentina face the runner up of Group E in the round of 16, which is likely to be Switzerland or Ecuador.

Sergio Aguero insists he is staying at Manchester City amid speculation linking him with a return to Spain.

Aguero has been repeatedly linked with a move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid, but is adamant he has no intention of leaving the Etihad. The Argentinian forward told a Spanish radio station "There's lots of talk about Real Madrid and Barcelona. It's always the same every year. But the truth is that I'm going to stay at City. I'm very happy and I'm going to continue there."

Manchester City are bracing themselves for a £60m bid from Real Madrid for Sergio Aguero according to an exclusive report in this morning's Daily Star newspaper.

The report by Jeremy Cross suggests Champions League winners Real Madrid will turn to Aguero having accepted defeat in their pursuit of number one target Luis Suarez, who has committed his future to Liverpool. £60million would seem about right for one of the best forwards in world football, but the problem Madrid will have is that Manchester City simply do not need the money. Any approach is therefore likely to be rebuffed, which means it would be down to the player to force a move. If there is truth in the report then expect this one to run and run over the summer.

Manchester City have agreed to combination of fines, roster limitations and transfer spending limits after being found in violation of UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules.

Manchester City will face a limited 21 player roster (as opposed to the usual 25) for next season's Champions League as well as agreeing to limit their summer spending. The combined penalties could hinder City's chances of moving further in the Champions League next season given their apparent need for reinforcements across the back line in addition to competing for up-and-coming players who they'd like to purchase before their prices get too out-sized. This certainly isn't to say City can't improve given these constraints but it will make it significantly more difficult.

Sergio Aguero could feature in Manchester City's match this Sunday after recovering from a groin injury.

Aguero has had a number of muscular injuries this season and the latest kept him out of his team's midweek match against Aston Villa. Despite that, Aguero has been declared fit and he himself has stated that he's "raring to go" and excited to feature in the match. With that in mind, we would be skeptical in recommending him for fantasy purposes. Manchester City have played it safe with Aguero this season, which is understandable considering his injury history and his hopes of playing in the World Cup this summer. At the same time, Manchester City are one win away from winning the Premier League, so they could be wiling to take a bigger risk with him if it maximizes their chances of winning the title. They've played well without him, but they've been better with him. With all these facts in mind, we think the chances of Aguero playing the full match are small. If you want a Manchester City attacker, go with Edin Dzeko.

Sergio Aguero has been ruled out for Manchester City's midweek clash against Aston Villa.

Aguero suffered a groin injury and limped off in the first half of City's last match and he will miss the midweek clash with Aston Villa. Aguero has suffered four muscular injuries this season that have caused him problems repeatedly and it was expected for him to be cautious ahead of the World Cup. Edin Dzeko has been in great form lately and will lead the line for City. It's unknown if City will choose to go with two strikers or one but they need the win if they want to win the Premier League title so you can expect them to be fully determined to win. Their players will be good options for the final week of the season.

Sergio Aguero scored Manchester City's first goal of the day but limped off the pitch shortly after with what appeared to be a groin injury.

The injury is a huge blow for Aguero and for City and the striker now risks missing the World Cup depending on how serious the injury is. The good news is that the injury didn't appear to be too serious and Aguero was walking without too big of a limp; the bad news is that he's had several muscular injuries this season that have continued causing him problems. If Aguero misses the final two matches of the season, Edin Dzeko will lead the line for Manchester City and will be a great fantasy pick for week 38. Check back before the deadline next weekend to get an update on Aguero's status.

Manchester City moved within six points of Premier League leaders Liverpool with a routine 3-1 victory over West Brom.

The scoring was opened by a rare Pablo Zabaleta goal within three minutes, before Sergio Aguero put Manchester City well in control after ten minutes with his first goal since returning from injury. West Brom threatened to rock the boat thanks to an excellent goal from Graham Dorrans, but Martin Demichelis made it 3-1 before half-time. The second half was reasonably uneventful - Liverpool stay in pole position, but if Manuel Pellegrini's men can keep their superior goal difference, they still have a chance of the title. City would need to win their final four games and hope Liverpool lose one of their final three. West Brom remain in trouble, just three points above the drop-zone.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed Sergio Aguero is fit and ready to face Liverpool on Sunday.

Pellegrini backed up reports from earlier in the week by confirming "Sergio is OK; he worked all week with the squad normally, so he doesn't have any problem". This seems to suggest the striker will start against Liverpool, which is great news for Manchester City and makes Aguero an extremely tempting option for the double-week. Pellegrini also confirmed that - with the exception of long-term absentee Matija Nastasic - he has a fully fit squad to choose from.
