Up close with Sergio Aguero

It is not so long ago that Manchester City was crowned the football champions of the long-fought English Premier League. Among the contingent at that 11 May final's 2-0 victory against West Ham, was star striker Sergio "Kun" Aguero. While he did not score at that match, he is famously (or infamously?) known for kicking in a last-minute goal that made City the champions back in 2012.

Aguero’s next port of call now is Brazil, where he will represent Argentina at World Cup 2014. His national team is among the favourites for champions, and will take on Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria in Group F.

He has been named on Argentinian coach Alejandro Sabella’s provisional 30-man squad alongside fellow Manchester City players Pablo Zabaleta and Martin Demichelis. And he will be no doubt be partnered with fellow national striker Lionel Messi, in what should be one of the most electrifying on-field pairings at the World Cup.

While he has been hampered by injuries all season long, Aguero said at a press conference in Singapore on 15 May: “I’m still getting better from my previous injuries I had in the season. But I’m starting training next week for the next four weeks, and I’m looking forward to the World Cup.”

He was here for a promotional event last week with footballer Rio Ferdinand.
