In absence of Lionel MessiSergio Agüero was welcomed as the Argentina national team returned to training ahead of Sunday’s World Cup final against France. The captain remained in the gym to make regenerating movements together with those who started in the 3-0 win against Croatia. For this reason, while the rest moved more intensely under the orders of the physical trainer, Luis Martín, and the gaze of Lionel Scaloni, the spotlights of the hundreds of lenses and cameras focused on the particular visit that the Albiceleste studio had.
Kun suddenly came out dressed in AFA clothes. As if he was one of the delegation. However, the crack that emerged from Independiente is not officially part of the staff, although the doors are open to move freely. In fact, this Thursday is not the first time that the historic Manchester City goalscorer has been present at a test with the national team shirt. He had already been in the preview of the semifinal. And he even shared a barbecue with the team.
True to his style, Agüero sat on one of the substitutes’ benches and enjoyed joking with Scaloni, the props and some of the starters who appeared for a while during the 15 minutes in which the press from around the world could observe the training . Exactly one year ago, Kun had to announce his definitive farewell to professional football due to a heart problem that manifested itself in the middle of a match with Barcelona. Now dedicated to becoming a successful streamer, the former striker enjoys playing outdoors even if he can’t wait to at least get in for a while to kick a ball in training. At one point, in fact, he started stretching and imitating warm-up movements as if he were getting ready to take the field. Scaloni laughed from inside the field where the national team prepares its matches at the University of Qatar.
Nicolás Tagliafico, Nahuel Molina, Cuti Romero, Leandro Paredes, Nicolas Otamendi and Julián Álvarez were the ones who went out to see the other players’ drills and enjoyed Kun, who was also joined at one point by a relaxed Scaloni .
