Russia were able to show some signs of life as Denis Glushakov fired a pair of efforts on Sergio Romero's goal, with the latter forcing him into action for the first time in the match.

He later recovered consciousness, according to TyC Sports.

Mikel again lost to the Albiceleste at 2008 Olympic Games Final, but found some joy when he played in the side that beat them 4-1 in a friendly game in Abuja in 2011.

Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi celebrates scoring Nigeria's fourth goal against Argentina.

Nigeria started the game with frayed nerves fell behind in the 27 minute after goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi's blunder handed the Argentines a free kick, which Ever Banega converted.

But Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho pulled one back on the stroke of half-time before Iwobi netted a second-half brace either side of a goal from Brian Idowu to shock the South Americans.

The Premier League club announced on their website: "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 today".

He did not appear after the break, though, with Argentina's Football Association confirming he had undergone further checks after the match before returning to the team hotel.

Argentina promptly doubled their advantage when Aguero, who scored the late winner over Russia, converted a right-wing cross by Cristian Pavon, the Boca Juniors winger making his first international start.

Nigeria dominated Group B in CAF qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, topping the standings ahead of Zambia, Cameroon and Algeria.
