"Sergio never lost consciousness, and was taken to hospital for precautionary medical checks," City said on their official website (www.mancity.com). Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli rested Lionel Messi following the 1-0 win over next year's World Cup host Russia Saturday and it seemed that they could cope without him. Ever Banega curled in a free kick, awarded after Nigeria goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi picked the ball up outside his area, in the 28th minute and Aguero finished off a sweeping counter-attack eight minutes later.

But Kelechi Iheanacho inspired Nigeria's fightback. First, he emulated Banega by scoring from a free kick on the stroke of halftime and then set up the equaliser by pulling the ball back for Alex Iwobi to net seven minutes after the re-start. The Super Eagles took the lead two minutes after that when Brian Idowu sidefooted home from the edge of the area to finish off a counter attack.
