The former Atletico Madrid striker hung up his boots in December 2021 after discovering he had heart problems shortly after joining Barcelona.

Since then, he has played an active role in supporting his national team and was seen speaking to Lionel Messi via video call earlier in the tournament.

Aguero was told he was missed by the rest of the national side – having played such an important role for Argentina throughout his career.

The former striker will be hoping his contribution can be the deciding factor when they face Didier Deschamps’ France in the final on Sunday.
