Sergio Aguero was the MVP of Argentina's World Cup celebrations after 'doing a John Terry'
| Last updated
Sergio Aguero was desperate to celebrate Argentina's World Cup triumph with his former teammates - changing into a full kit immediately after the penalty shootout.
Lionel Scaloni's side beat France 4-2 after a thrilling 3-3 draw in regulation time at Lusail Stadium on Sunday evening.
It's the third time Argentina have won the World Cup and the first since 1986. Aguero, forced into last December with a heart issue, wasn't missing out on any fun.
The former Manchester City striker flew out to Qatar earlier this week to room with close friend Lionel Messi, as he did on international duty.
Aguero was around Argentina's camp throughout the week, even taking part in training on Thursday. He definitely hadn't lost a step.
He was then present for Messi's 'Player of the Match' presentation following Tuesday's 3-0 semi-final triumph over Croatia.
Naturally, he was in the stadium for the final against France. Decked out in an Otamendi shirt in tribute to his former City teammate and Argentina defender, the 34-year-old went through all the emotions across a dramatic 120 minutes.
The game went to penalties and after misses from Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni, Gonzalo Montiel fired home the winning spot kick for Argentina.
Aguero immediately got out of his seat to make his way onto the pitch. It was party time for La Albiceleste.
City's all-time top goalscorer got his hands on a drum, banging along as Argentina players and the backroom staff danced.
Then came the ultimate crowning moment. Aguero, who played 101 times for Argentina between 2006 and 2021, was allowed to hold the World Cup trophy. Considering his contributions to his country over the last 15 years, it's the respect he deserves.
Some supporters compared it to the actions of former Chelsea captain John Terry in the 2012 Champions League final.
After being sent off in semi-final triumph over Barcelona, Terry was forced to miss the final against Bayern Munich through suspension.
Chelsea won the game, with Terry coming onto the pitch in full kit to lift the trophy himself.
One person said: "Slight bit of John Terry about this from Aguero but I'll allow it."
Another commented: "Sergio Aguero wearing an Argentina kit… he’s gone full John Terry."
A third tweeted: "I'm so glad Aguero got to lift it."
While someone put: "We’ve seen some ridiculous moments in this final but nothing tops Sergio Aguero wearing an Otamendi shirt."
