Manchester City sponsor Etisalat have congratulated the team on their Premier League title success in a flamboyant manner - by releasing a video of players and fans celebrating in a stage-managed fashion.

Aguero missed most of City's games in March because of a left knee injury.

Argentina's first match of the tournament is against Iceland on June 16.

Aguero has had keyhole surgery after being troubled by a knee issue for the last five weeks.

Aguero, meanwhile, is relieved that there will be no nerve-jangling at City this season after wrapping up the Premier League title with five games to spare.

Returning to full fitness in time for this summer's World Cup will now be Aguero's main concern, with the showpiece event in Russian Federation now just two months away.

After City moved to the brink of glory with a 3-1 defeat of Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday, a shock 1-0 win for bottom side West Brom at Old Trafford meant rivals Manchester United could no longer catch Pep Guardiola's side.

Argentina are one of the favourites to be crowned world champions, after losing in the final to Germany four years ago, and Agüero will be a key figure alongside Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain's Angel Di María.
