Argentina striker Sergio Aguero is sidelined from Tuesday’s second round match against Switzerland with a a muscular injury in his left leg.

The Manchester City centre-forward pulled up in the 38th minute of Wednesday’s 3-2 win over Nigeria and was replaced by Ezekiel Lavezzi.

“It’s a first-degree muscle strain in his femoral biceps,” said Argentina team doctor Daniel Martinez. “It’s a degree lower within the muscular injuries. ”

Dr. Martinez told reporters the 26-year-old was undergoing magnetic resonance and other urgent treatments at the team’s camp in Belo Horizonte in a bid to get him back in action in the shortest while, but admits he will not be fit for Tuesday’s clash with Switzerland.

He added: “We have all the resources available to progress as quickly as possible. He won’t be ready for the Switzerland game, and from there we’ll check his evolution day by day.”

However, other sources closed to the team feels Aguero would almost certainly miss further games, if Argentina progress.

Aguero’s condition adds to the two-time champions’ injury concerns, with Rodrigo Palacio recovering from a minor ankle injury and Gonzalo Higuain just getting back to peak fitness after a spell on the sidelines.
