Aguero, who suffered a thigh injury during Argentina's group stage match against Nigeria, may be able to play in the semifinal against the Netherlands on Wednesday, the Daily Mail reports. "Sergio has practiced three times. He's ready to play," said team doctor Daniel Martinez on Sunday.

Aguero's return will be a solid boost for Argentina, who will be without midfielder Angel di Maria, who suffered a thigh injury in the quarterfinal against Belgium. Aguero may not be able to go the whole 90, but he's a threat to score any time he's on the field, especially up top with Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain.

Aguero will not play in Argentina's round of 16 match at the World Cup against Switzerland due to the thigh injury he suffered Wednesday against Nigeria in their final group stage match, The Guardian reports.

There is speculation that Aguero could be out for the rest of the World Cup, although the Argentina FA has yet to confirm that report. Luckily for Argentina, they are incredibly deep at forward, with Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Ezequiel Lavezzi likely to start up front against the Swiss.

Aguero was subbed off after just 36 minutes in Argentina's World Cup match against Nigeria on Wednesday, the Manchester Evening News reports.

The injury was yet another issue that Aguero has faced over the last year, as he missed time in the most recent Premier League season with thigh, hamstring and groin injuries. With Argentina next playing Tuesday against Switzerland, there may be sufficient time for Aguero to return to fitness.

Aguero, who has been sidelined with a groin injury, said he will play in Sunday's season-finale against West Ham, the club's official web site reports. "I feel good -- I am not 100 percent yet, but I should be by Sunday and even if I'm not, the emotion of the occasion and the desire of everyone will carry me through and I won't notice any pain," Aguero said Friday.

Manchester City need only a draw to win their second Premier League title in the last three seasons, and Aguero obviously wants to be a part of it. There is no guarantee that he will start the match, as Edin Dzeko has done a fine job up front lately, but it wouldn't be surprising if Aguero featured, even if City have a commanding lead over the Hammers.

Aguero will not play Wednesday against Aston Villa due to the groin injury he picked up last weekend against Everton, according to Mark Ogden of the Daily Telegraph.

Aguero is also considered an injury doubt for Sunday's season finale against West Ham.

Aguero scored in the 22nd minute of Manchester City's 3-2 win over Everton on Saturday, but left in the 28th minute after suffering a groin injury, PA Sport reports.

It's been an up-and-down season for Aguero, who has scored 17 times in 22 appearances, but he's missed time with calf and hamstring injuries, prior to Saturday's groin ailment. It's unclear how serious the latest injury is, but City still have two very important fixtures left: if they defeat Aston Villa on Wednesday and West Ham next Sunday, they will win the Premier League.

Aguero is in the starting XI for Wednesday's match against Sunderland.

Aguero has not started a Premier League match since January 29 against Tottenham, which is also the last time he scored a goal. He will be up front with Alvaro Negredo, who is also in a scoring slump, although his is not injury-related like Aguero's.

Aguero (hamstring) is available off the bench for Sunday's Premier League match against Liverpool at Anfield.

Aguero has missed the last five games, and he'll be eased back into the City lineup. Edin Dzeko starts up front Sunday, but Aguero is certainly expected to feature at some point. If he's able to make it through the match Sunday, he could play a bigger role Wednesday against Sunderland.
