Sergio Aguero's excellence was compromised on Tuesday, but there's no need to panic.

After Aguero suffered from a dizzy spell during Argentina's 4-2 friendly defeat to Nigeria and was taken to hospital, Manchester City published an update and announced El Kun was cleared by doctors and will be assessed before the Citizens invade Leicester City in the Premier League.

"Sergio Aguero has been cleared by doctors to return to Manchester as planned after suffering a dizzy spell during Argentina's 4-2 defeat by Nigeria in Krasnodar," the club said in a statement.

"Sergio never lost consciousness, and was taken to hospital for precautionary medical checks. He will be assessed by the club's medical team ahead of this weekend's Premier League trip to Leicester City."

Aguero scored Argentina's second goal of the friendly, one-timing a pass from Cristian Pavon into the back of the net in the 36th minute. It was his 36th international goal, allowing the product of CA Independiente to seize third place on La Albiceleste's all-time scoring list. At the interval, he was replaced by Dario Benedetto.
