Sergio Aguero scored the only goal of the game as Russia and Argentina heralded a new chapter in the history of the Luzhniki Stadium, the flagship arena for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™. The match was a good test for both teams in the build-up to the tournament next summer.
Argentina continued the trend from their World Cup qualifiers, creating plenty of chances but only managing to convert one in the final moments of the game. In the 86th minute, Aguero had a shot that Igor Akinfeev parried, but the striker was quickest to the rebound and headed into an empty net. (11 NOV 2017)
