Aguero and Messi Celebrate Argentina’s World Cup Win
The World Cup final was one of the best matches in recent history. Argentina beat France on penalties following a dramatic game that saw star players Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe come up against each other.
Former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero joined in the celebrations after the victory. And Chelsea legend John Terry couldn’t resist poking fun at him – and himself.
It was a great night for Lionel Messi and Argentina on Sunday as they beat France to win the World Cup on penalties. And former striker Sergio Aguero stole the show by pulling on a kit to join in with the celebrations.
After retiring from the game last year following a heart condition, Aguero has been a fixture at Lionel Scaloni’s side in Qatar, acting as an honorary team member and being in the tunnel with the Albiceleste at every game.
He has also roomed with Lionel Messi on several occasions, the pair forming a close friendship that dates back to their time together in the Under-20 World Cup in 2005.
It is no secret that the pair are friends – they have often joked that they are like old married couples. So Aguero’s presence in Argentina’s camp, whether in training or on the pitch, is a welcome one.
Man City sprinted to the top of the table before the break with a win against Liverpool and a 2-1 success against Leeds in the Carabao Cup. But they’re still not perfect, with a draw against Newcastle and a home defeat to Brentford the only real wobbles this season.
It’s been a tough start for the champions, but with both John Stones and Sergio Aguero back from injury they should be able to get the job done at home against Leicester on Saturday. Aguero is the Premier League’s top scorer and his return will boost Guardiola’s attack, while Stones should have the confidence to start for the first time since September as City look to regain their crown.
Despite a tumultuous history, Manchester City have reestablished themselves as a dominant force in English football under Pep Guardiola. They won the Premier League title in 2016 and have added two League Cups to their trophy cabinet under him.
Chelsea have been one of the most popular clubs in the world for over a century and, while they may have missed out on the big time in recent years, the club has had plenty to celebrate over that period. They have won a number of top competitions, including the Champions League, two FA Cups and the Carabao Cup.
However, they have also been through a lot of financial problems, thanks to an ambitious attempt to redevelop Stamford Bridge and their on-pitch performances and dressing room morale have often been questioned. A lot of changes have been made to the team during this period and it is a testament to their determination that they are still challenging for honours.
Aguero has been a key player in their success over the past decade, scoring 244 goals to become their greatest ever goal scorer. He also has 15 goals against them in his career, with the Blues having won just twice in the Premier League since 2011.
The World Cup is the most popular international football tournament and it’s one of the most watched sports events in the world. It has been held every four years since 1930, except 1942 and 1946 because of World War II.
The tournament is divided into two phases: Groups and knockouts. The top two teams from each group advance to the knockout stage, where they face each other in normal time or in extra-time.
It’s a competitive and exciting tournament that sees the best teams in the world compete against each other. The competition has produced some of the greatest players in history, such as Pele and Juste Fontaine.
Sergio Aguero wasn’t part of Argentina’s squad that won the World Cup in Qatar but he made it clear that he’s still very much a member of the team when he borrowed a shirt from former Manchester City teammate Nicolas Otamendi and joined the team for their celebrations after winning the final.
