Sergio Aguero could line up for Manchester City against Leicester at the weekend after the club eased worries about his health following a dressing-room incident on Argentina duty.

The Argentinian Football Federation said Aguero fainted at half-time in last night's 4-2 friendly defeat against Nigeria, and he was taken to hospital, however City stated he was always conscious.

The Manchester City striker scored after 36 minutes in Krasnodar to put Argentina 2-0 ahead, but did not come out for the second half and was replaced by Dario Benedetto.

The Argentinian federation stated in a Twitter post: "(Aguero medical bulletin) He fainted and was therefore transferred to carry out routine checks just as a precaution."

It later added that Aguero had left hospital and was "at the hotel with the rest of the delegation".

Elsewhere, Chris Coleman marked what could be his final game as Wales manager with a 1-1 draw against World Cup finalists Panama.

Tom Lawrence's 75th-minute wonderful solo strike was cancelled out in the third minute of stoppage time by Armando Cooper.

Meanwhile, Alexandre Lacazette scored twice as France drew 2-2 with Germany.
