  • Lionel Messi and Paulo Dybala

The goal by the Manchester City forward gave the South Americans a deserved win at Moscow's renovated 81,000-capacity Luzhniki stadium.

That was a different Aguero though, and the Pep Guardiola version put in an excellent performance for Jorge Sampaoli's side today, scoring a deserved victor in the 86th minute of their friendly against Russian Federation.

Cherchesov added: "I think our defence played correctly from a tactical point of view but we were unable to start quality attacks, especially in the first half, when we had the ball".

"Some of the things that we planned worked in this clash against this tough opponent", Argentina manager, Jorge Sampaoli, told reporters. We played a very intense game.

"Messi and Aguero has so much understanding during the game which was good".

However, Sampaoli said Argentina had been too cautious at times and "there were situations when we weren't able to apply the final touch".

Barcelona star striker Lionel Messi has brushed aside recent reports of his influence on the selection of Argentina squad.

Spain, who won the World Cup for the first time in 2010, will be in the pot of second seeds with England, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay when the draw for next year's tournament takes place in host city Moscow on Friday December 1.

Three minutes later, Aguero forced Akinfeev into a diving save to deny his attempt from just outside the box.

Aguero broke the deadlock when he headed in a rebound from his own blocked shot after a sharp break down the right wing and low cross from Cristian Pavon.

Sergio Aguero's late goal defeated Russian Federation in their friendly on Saturday night and they now head off to Krasnodar to take on Nigeria. "We created resistance to the pressure that our opponent put us under", Sampaoli said through a translator.
