The only man to score in Monday night’s international friendly between Argentina and Bosnia-Herzegovina was Sergio Kun Aguero. The Manchester City striker put two in the back of the net for his native Argentina in route to a 2-0 win. Friendlies are taking place all across the globe right now during the international break and players like Aguero are using it as a chance to not only stay in good form for his Premier League squad, but to expand their image and reputation abroad. That’s why last night’s friendly versus Bosnia in St. Louis, Missouri was more than just a meaningless exhibition for fledgling stars such as Aguero.

The 25-year-old forward scored in the 40th and 66th minutes, picked up a yellow card in the 59th, and was subbed out in the 77th. Let’s just say his name appeared on the stat sheet quite a bit for a friendly. The St. Louis crowd was treated to an Aguero-filled match, which, because of Lionel Messi’s absence, had to be much appreciated. Especially when he can provide plays like this:

However, even though he didn’t forget to bring his game on Monday, Aguero did forget his cleats – the Puma evoSPEED 1.2 in Blackberry. Woops…
Well, SoccerPro had his back and sent him out a pair just in time for the match on Monday.



We like to think our boots were the reason Sergio was able to grab two goals on the way to a victory. Thanks to Aguero and our Puma evoSPEEDs for giving the crowd in St. Louis a good show!
